Flat Tyre

I looked in dismay

Couldn’t believe my eyes

A flat on the car

Me in my heels

A sigh and a laugh

No help to be found

A spare in the boot

A jack underneath

And up went the car

Wheel was released

I heaved and pulled

And off shot the wheel

A quick swap was done

A new one to drive

And me in my black dress

And a pair of heels

Amazing what a

Girl can do!

I’m not hot I’m cool

The heat is amazing, no sun, no breeze

Dark skies, humidity, we struggle

We need to think cool thoughts

Ice in a gin and tonic

Cool lake to swim in

Snow capped mountains

Icy water running from glaciers

I think cool thoughts

I turn the fan on full

It whips my hair into a tangled mess

No worries, bare feet on the flagstones outside

Ice cold Gin and Tonic in my hand

Rain is released from the dark black clouds

Soaking me from head to toe

I feel like a child being sprayed with water

I laugh and giggle as I dance in the rain

It feels so good to feel alive.
