Longest Day
article by
M J Eaton

Waiting in the weighted air
Moisture seeps into clothing and hair
Damp is the cover of all 
Both inside and it seems
Darkening, the sky, cloud full
Changes in monochromatic hue to hue
Wind is hidden from both view and result
Chickens are happy to roost tonight
Hoping a rain will bring a cooler daylight.
