White Heat Christmas

Image result for heatwave christmas australia 2016

Stillness,

pervasive white heat

for Christmas Day

 

Glare washes out colours,

heat bounces off

concrete, asphalt, steel

 

Doors closed,

inhabitants have burrowed

deep in to tenements,

townhouses, apartments

 

A quietened city

slowed

by Nature’s blistering energy

 

regardless of the day
