In the Heat of the Day

The scorching heat of the sun
on a hot and cloudless day
is enough to keep one indoors
and avoid the great outdoors.
The only consolation
is the occasional wind
that blows so gently.
This is when there is wish
that we had more big trees
with large canopies
to green and cool the earth.

In the heat of the day,
while clothes dry faster,
the young leaves of plants get
scorched and wilt.
In the heat of the day,
evaporation happens on a faster rate
and humidity goes up.
In the heat of the day,
we dread walking in the streets
which are now full of shady people
but so lacking in shady trees.
