Senses of Summer

Delicious humidity.
Warmth of light
From the sun
On my bare
Back.

Scalding sun burns
The skin off
Of the tip
Of my
Nose.

Sploosh of water in the
Pool as I dive
In and cool
My entire
Being.

Delicious humidity.
Scalding sunburns.
Sploosh of water.
Smell,
Taste,
Hear,
Feel,
See,
Summer.

Amazing! I thought I'd check out one of your poems (we met in the forums) and I really like this. Ahh, summer. :)

Oh, I relish this when I read it.  I feel like i'm swimming in summer. Fantastic job, you've painted a picture with words, wonderfully.
