Melting cherry ice cream in a forest of pines
The color of green grass right before the sunset
The gleam of the sidewalks on a sunny tuesday afternoon
The clink of a scooter wheel on the concrete of a home
The beautiful dust of summers past and the shreiks of childhood chaos
A shimmering ribbon amidst the almost-dusk
A million pamphlets on the porch of places we dream of
The baby blue paint on an oldsmobile and the sound of pulling in
The feeling of worlds between your mind and the edge of the air around you
A euphoric spin before the dazed fall
A merry go round of interlinked hands before the night's first showing stars
Tracing around us in the august dust and hazy brightness
Everytime we breathe
