the hazy glow of summertime has nearly reached its end
though the sweet taste of ice cream is still on our lips
the fairy wings of summer are put away
memories full of music and laughter echo but fade
we can still remember the idle hours of yesterday
as we return to the steady rhythm of today
we reached for the stars and gazed at the sun
we ran wild, we danced without a care.
howled at the moon and posed with a bear.
we languished idly when the moment felt right
as it often did.
but now we’ve memed all the moments
we’ve plunged all the depths
we’ve plenty of chlorine to rinse from our tresses
the beach bags are empty
the sunscreen’s run out.
we know what this means:
school’s in, summer’s out.
I’m linking up with Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. I chose her first prompt this week: Your summer recap in a poem and pictures. Head to her blog for more fun!
One response to “an ode to the summer: because all good things must come to an end”
This is such a sweet post and I love your pictures!!
