Summertime 

It’s sum, sum, summertime…
Ahhhh…finally
sittin’ on the swing
spittin’ out the seeds
swattin’ at the skeeters
puttin’ in the veggies
openin’ the winders
slamminin’ the screen door
barefoot toesies
pickin’ posies
sunburned nosies
wormin’ fish hooks
campin’ by brooks
family picnics
 

lightnin’ bugs in a jar 

s’mores
s’mores
s’mores
t-shirts
swimsuits
flip flops
ponytails
crew cuts
 

summer cicadas
lull me to slumber
sweet serenades
conducted by the masters
filled with water
the old Atlas jar
sets stage on
the front porch with
sweet black-eyed Susan’s
my sunshine in a bottle
 

this is all
I require
today
