"I Love" This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   summertime

a smile splits my lips

as cool water

drenches my body

hot as cajun



the waves

i welcome like friends

with opened arms,

we dance together



the salt water pleases my tongue

as i run from the ocean

splashing drops

like magic dust



the sun

warms my back and

the soft sand is like

a goose down comforter



my toes dig deeper

into the sparkling chips

feeling moist

from the dampness of the sand



my ears

hear happy melodies

laughter

together

the echo of pleasure



i savor

the oreo-cookie ice cream

as it drips from

the sugar hat



leaving,

the ball of fire

simmers in the west,

i take home a pinkish glow
