my muse


you are summer
you are sunshine
you are heat waves
you are bonfires

crickets chirping
the sound of waves
lapping at the shore

you are sunlight
reflecting off the water
you are lazy, sweltering days
you are constellations
so close you can almost touch them

thunder storms
perfumed summer breeze
loud florescent
soft sunkissed skin

you are sitting at the top
of the slide in the park after dark
you are long walks
as the sun sets
skipping pebbles over waves

you are innocence
wide-eyed wonder
you are flushed cheeks
and giddy smiles
you are memories
you are whispers

you are summer
always summer
you are summer to me
