........summer days


























i want to take a cool shower with peppermint soap,  put on the perfect summer clothes oh no-not
that fancy dress with flowers but the long t-shirt the one i have washed a million times it has become the softest thing i own, oh yes dear friends i know there is few holes here and there but to me it is perfect for all the rest of summer days.

i want to spend the next few days eating tomatoes from the vine, picking blackberries till my fingers turn all shades of blue. i want my glass to be filled with ice and lemon maybe some mint and basil too. i want to lay in the hammock without a book,  instead i want to stare up at the sky and listen to the leaves and the bees not to mention the quacks.  i want to eat my evening meal on the porch of the writers shack by candlelight while listening to the crickets and my love. i want to lay on freshly washed sheets, with one foot of the bed waiting for the perfect summer evening breeze to help me fall asleep.

i want to know i have not wasted any summer days, so i must go  but before i do, happy summer weekend dear friends, hope you will enjoy it too.

I want to walk when the sun sets and the breeze is still warm; I want to go out and sip mojito with friends; I want to eat breakfast outside on the porch; I want to be filled with the wind, to eat peaches, to drink mint scent from the fields.

What a beautiful summer you describe... I hope you enjoy it. Me too, I'm game to live that intently these last days of summer.
