Drowsy Afternoon

Humming clouds that hover overhead
Dim the friendly brightness of the yellow sun
Threat of storms implicit in their shade
Sultry heat, and birds have silenced all their songs
Drowsy afternoon, my tired eyes
Keep drifting shut despite my will to stay awake
The book I hold slips gently to the ground
And storm or no storm, I am lost in needed sleep …
