Images of Red, Hot Summer to Remember by

Dr Abe V Rotor

Sweltering hot on a summer day,
     I dared to go out and play.
Would I cower from  the sun and breeze
     in an aircon room in ease?

Through the years I asked this myself
     like an old book in a shelf;
A grownup now of many a summer gone
     still afraid of the sun?

Tame me, I asked the camera's eye,
    to places we go before I die;
Long live did I, and perhaps forever,
    these photos to remember~
