I can’t think of anything
anything better than cool lemonade
under the bleary summer sun
or the ice cream melting faster than you can lick
sweet, sticky
the gritty sand beneath your heating body
or a dip in the lagoon blue sea
the waves pushing and tempting
that breeze brushing your sweltering skin
breathing some life back into it
and you sit, satisfied on the patio in the evening
watching the sky splash pink
the flock of birds rising
feeling the day unwind
with the mysterious chirps of crickets
the lazy pursuit of darkness
bathing in the dusk light
these summer days
that linger.
