a poem about the nostalgia of summer
Skinned elbows and bruised knees,
twirling leaves and swaying trees

sweet grass and rough dirt,
slip-n-slides and getting hurt

hot pavement and yellow lines,
urban jungles and flashing signs

skateboard flips and bicycle races,
laughing hard and silly faces

Late bonfires and blazing marshmallows,
Dorito chips and Mellow Yellow

Backyard sprinklers and water hoses,
eye goggles and plugged up noses

Swing sets and hot slides,
freeze tag and seek-n-find

Peroxide bleaches and lemon spray,
flip flops and sunny days

Memories of joy, in the summer haze.
