I love the summer
The way the sun kisses everything in its path
drowning it in a glow as if it were lit up on a stage
awaiting for anxious eyes to watch their performance.
is filled with a perfume of
trampled grass, pollen, and musk
that comes from dirt and rotten leaves
And all of this seeps into the deep fragment of clothes and every strand of hair.
seems to beckon the world to arise out from its winter slumber
underneath wool and cotton
It is as if the whole world is under some
where time can freeze
making infinite memories
drowned by waves of indescribable wonder
making even simple car rides through the country an adventure and a journey
walks transform into cinemas of awe striking beauty.
Love blossoms out of ashes
just as parched flowers bloom after a midnight storm
and even the most broken of hearts mend
only to turn and find love again.
Children's imaginations and minds soar to great heights
no longer limited by
of cookie cutter education.
I love the extended days
the seemingly endless nights humid nights
and the bright stars that dance above my head
as I truly feel that I could do anything
in this summer.
