To relax

Someone is on vacation
Summer is....
to relax
to soak in the sun
to eat berries fresh from the vine
to giggle
and big laugh
til you cry and your sides hurt
to explore
to try things you've never done before
to feel the cool grass between your bare toes
for pedicures
for flip flops
to dance with hummingbirds
and dragon flies
and big huge mosquito eating spiders
to stand at the sink and eat fresh tomatoes
to hold hands
to swim in ice cold rivers
to smell like bonfire the next morning
for pigtails
and buns
braids
ponytails
skirts that flounce
while walking your dog around the block
for piles of books to read
naps
and giving yourself a break.

Fresh tomatoes - what wonderful memories that brings back - the huge ones my grandpa grew and cut into big thick slices and salted.

The whole post is lovely.

Oh, my goodness...I want to stick this on my fridge to help me get through our looong winters! You captured it all.

Everyone blogs
Few people are poets.
Good on you.
