I love this time of year, and I couldn’t resist sharing this poem I wrote a few years ago. I love this poem.
Summer is like magic. Summer is the part of yourself that is happy when the sky is blue and the days are longer. Summer is about childhood memories, fireworks and sticky marshmallow fingers sitting around a campfire. Summer is about reminiscing. It’s about dreaming.
People say there is something
about the way light shines across crystal
across diamonds, too
But there is really something to be said
about thousands of lightning bugs
on a warm June night
that makes the world glitter and take a deep breath
These are the diamonds of the mid-night summer
these gems of remembrance
these flashes of yesterday.
