Summer time stretches out in front of us with waves and wishes. Backyard, air conditioning , picnics, weddings, sun screen, beaches, camping, and adventure all become part of our summer time vernacular. The following words are from a few summers past, but they still hold true this time of year. Enjoy.Summer, you are leaving me… almost gone, but I am not done tasting you yet.
I know you are going, because the evenings are more watermelon juice drips then perspiration. I can feel it in the morning air as I stir awake, you smell different this time of year, not so sticky, yet sweet.
The dark comes earlier, the blue mix with peaches that hang heavy in the tree, ripe and ready and in the blushing of the leaves in the strong sycamore that shushes in the exhale.
I still have a few things left for you, summer. Summer don’t fall too quickly away…
Keep chasing the light my friends, Vanessa Simpson
