Just Reminiscing, Poem: Summer

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.
