bright white clouds turning shapes across a dazzling blue sky,
yellow banana peel, orange peeled
juice dripping sticky from fleshy fingers;
golden sunset to pink sunrise.
Tall orchard grass,
pear blossoms brushing petals in the breeze
sun-burnt lips, road trip west through red clay
red dirt; foaming beer
climbing shoes and chalked hands gripping the sharp undulating cascading cliff face.
Huckleberry ice cream sweet and cold and purple
burning sun overhead, luscious scent of shade at the waters edge;
rushing rivers, swim suit ties untied
bare feet pounding the sandy ground.
Spanish guitar picking 12 strings
paper plane, gliding through the air lands, in the hands
of a pretty girl with a freckled face.
Aqua ocean tide ripping,
strawberry pineapple smoothie on tye-dye towels sipping;
the sun sets, bonfires emerging like stars popping into view
the music drifts, loud and bold and jubilant,
a summer hue.
Tan lines and sand-dusted skin, late night jazz
dancing down the street in Brooklyn;
star-dappled skies cover the evening in a blanket of holes, fires ignite
roof top, cloths slip off, bottles buzz our skin
Midnight showing of Driving Miss Daisy,
lightning bugs bouncing off air waves and southern sweet grass, clay jars
bursting with color-dyed water
Twinkle lights and early morning hikes to see the sunrise
laughter and fresh tattoos, ink like honeysuckle
bees sip on the nectar of daisies, of roses, of apple blossoms.
Like a movie flickering through my mind, a rapid slideshow in an old theater
my carefree thoughts of summer.
throbbing sun-drunk skin sprawled beside ocean waves, red desert rock hot, lazy lakes of lazy days
burst through my mind
these flickers of summertime.
