Favorite Quote:
"Thou! thy truest type of grief is the gently falling leaf."
-Edgar Allan Poe


Sun beats down
On tanned skin,
On warm pavement,
On soft, tickling grass,
On smiles and laughs.
Toes wriggle
In cool water,
Chlorine-filled pool.
A savory, light crunch
Into fresh fruit flesh,
Pink juice dribbles sticky
Down grinning chins.
Seeds sucked from watermelon,
Spit swiftly out
Into welcoming grass.
Fresh-cut grass,
Scent wafting up:
Earthy, new and old.
My summertime.
