Summer things

Summer, here at last. 
Long days, sunlight, 
Mosquito bites and beaver dams. 

Maple creemees, flower gardens, 
camping and swimming, under the summer sun. 

Climbing trees, s'mores around the campfire, 
walking dogs and singing songs.

  • this summer

    this summer holds many adventures waiting:

    graduation
    next week I leave this school behind

    the begining of an end

    ice cream and treats with friends
    playing with the neighborhood dogs

  • ocean cottage

    10 years i've spent here
    this cottage by the sea

    these 10 years i've spent here
    have become a part of me

    long i've stood on this shore
    the tides come in and out
    and so my heartbeat follows:
    in and out

  • alone but not lonely

    a tundra desert stretches as far as the eye can see: 

    far away, one might glimpse 
    a wandering soul 

    a little fox, 
    fur white as the snow 
    eyes blue as the coldest mountain creek
