Summer, your heat seeps
into my cold bones.
You bake my worn body
and bring vitality back.
Winter weariness sheds.
Bright light surrounds me like a halo
I melt into your sunshine.
feeling it wrap around me like a warm glove.
Your rays penetrate my skin,
reviving my life force.
My heart beats faster as metabolism increases.
A sprinkle of laughter and joy return as
I slowly awaken to your light.
Hot balmy breezes blow through my window
awakening my senses. My bare feet sizzle
on pavement like pancakes on a hot griddle.
I gaze at the beauty of green grass
and pink magnolia’s in full bloom.
Flashes of pink, purple and yellow flowers
pour beauty into my path.
I walk on your warm earth
feeling my feet dance at your touch.
Creatures return to bask in your glory.
Oh summer, how I adore you!
