Broken Finally

Pounding

Waves of heat and

Humidity

Deafening hum of sharp fan blades

Ceases

Dehumidifier rattle

Replaced by tree frog chirps

Katydid buzz

Bird song

Winter Exercise

_____________________________________

My morning reps may be different than yours:

Lift light weight, walk twenty steps, go down stairs,

Walk twenty more steps, squat, lift three pounds.

Repeat until light weight becomes heavy.

Lift heavy weight, walk forty steps, squat down,

Place many three pound weights in bin. These are

My morning reps.

*

Repeat each early morning through winter.

For extra cardio sweep bits from floor.

The saying goes firewood warms you twice

And I can attest to this while doing

My morning reps.
