Thirteen Ways of Looking at Summer

to and fro the porch swing sways
looking past the breeze
heart of Summer rests in me
sun-kissed skin
mosquito bites
near the whispering creek lies Summer
summer skies
electric blue, run through me like a current
engulf me in this bliss
here and now
you think it'll last but it doesn't
Summer fades
beyond rolling aqua hills lies strawberry flowers
Summer children catching bugs
tents out back
midnight secrets
Summer kisses, memories
in the wake
get the jump
only in Summer, bathing suit pics
neon rays
life of Summer
blooming wave,green beds
too much Summer heat
jumping river
wavy hair, no make up
long walks
pebbled roadways
going somewhere, I don't know
Summer leaves, there are none
trips and falls
packed lunches
Summer madness
lazy days
lost track of time
only in my Summer mind
Summer ends
sweet goodbyes
until next time
