I long for the short hot nights of Summer
Dreamy days with lullaby scents from yesteryear
Rainbows in sprinklers
And zephyrs that caress with a well practiced softness.
I long for the short hot nights of Summer
So I can lay awake wishing it were cooler.

    1. The way time’s passing, VK, it’ll be here next week! 😀
      We’ve gone warm again now, so I have a feeling we may miss the snow this year (which isn’t really a bad thing!)

      Keep warm, VK! 😀
