It smells like summer
Of the suntan lotion smeared on bodies
White glimpses visible
The oily sheen left behind

The sun smiling down
Warming my back

The soft breeze
Welcomed instead of dreaded
Blowing in gentle curls across my face

The puffy clouds filling the sky
A sky so blue it seems you could swim in it
Drifting, rolling, tumbling
In a white bliss so clean

The grass pricking your back
Itchy but paying no mind to discomfort
Enjoying the moment

Barbecue filling the air
Burned and charred

Lemonade souring your mouth
Refreshing in an ice cold glass
As you sit in the sun
Your best friend beside you

Wearing shorts, flip flops
Waiting for the days to wear tank tops

Unable to concentrate in any class
The window is captivating
Showing the beauty of the day outside

The longing in your being
Needing to go out and
The air upon your skin
The grass between your toes
The heat on your face

It smells like summer.
