Summertime

Summertime: Long days, bright sun,
the smell of sunscreen and bug spray
and clouds of mosquitoes
while we're hiking in the trees.

And then!

Summer thunderstorms:
Lightning, flashing!
Clouds, growl!
Never ending rain –
yet dry tomorrow, roses bloom.

Quick trips to the ice cream stand:
laughter, fun.

Summer: Full of memories, blossoming with fun.

  • 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
