This week, Melbourne

 

Mother must think its winter

She is heating up the house

Unleashing a wrath of rays

Summer has arrived, Melbourne.

 

Sweltering in the south land

Stifled within a furnace

Baking in an earth-like kiln

Hell hath arrived in Melbourne.

 

Beaten by a wall of heat

Weary from restless sleeping

Grouchy from public delays

Melting with you, our Melbourne.

 

Storming through the urban town

Flashing when things get too low

Igniting country bush lands

It’s a fiery time, Melbourne.

 

Torture comes in many forms

Extremes go beyond the graph

People are put to the test

It’s a tough week in Melbourne.

    If you are having warm days. Good for you. We have have at least three months of Winter left here in Michigan. I hope you are enjoying the warm days. A nice poem for a Winter day.

      Thank you. We’ve had one scorching week in Australia hopefully mother nature can turn the heat down for us. I see from the news you’ve had a crazy winter so far..

      It sure was! There’s always been a common phrase amongst the locals that “if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 min” 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by.

    I was there in Melbourne the week before your post. I know since I left it has been very hot, then again it is hot up here in NSW as well, no cool change just yet. But while there I did frequent the lane ways of Melbourne with my son. Thank you so much for following my blog. I hope to visit again.

    Thanks for returning the follow. The cool change came in for us on Friday night and I don’t think there is a single Melbournian unhappy about it. I hope you enjoyed our laneway culture whilst here – it’s the best of Melbourne in my opinion. 🙂
