Summertime Poem

Summer is almost here. Enjoy this poem "Summertime" that explores this season with all our senses....

Summertime

Wet splashes from the pool

The smell of chlorine

Children’s laughter

Bees humming in clover

 

Succulent peaches

Juices sweet and sticky

Dripping down my chin

Tangled hair, untamed

 

The pop of ice cubes melting

Cups slick with moisture

Gin Rummy and Go Fish on the dusty porch

Salty potato chips

 

Purple cherries bursting with flavor

Sun out way past dinner

Blackberries stain our lips

Mosquitoes circling

 

Heat waves rising from asphalt

The smell of burnt rubber

Flip-flops slapping

Sand in my shorts
