Another summer officially comes to an end today, and phew, did this one fly by. Is it just me or does it really seem to go by faster every year?
To me, summer is a time, for humid days and balmy nights,
To feel the grass beneath your feet and the sand between your toes,
Of curtains dancing in the breeze and afternoon naps on the hammock,
Bike rides around town, hikes along fields, and meadows of wild flowers,
For morning swims in the lake and peering over a book to watch a evening thunderstorm pass by.
It's a time to reconnect and rejuvenate, but at summer's end, you regret the missed opportunities and things you meant to get done. Then you wait for the next one ...
