Sweet Little Nothings

Ride with the top down

Bikini tops & flip flops
replace bras & high heels.
It is the season for hair up
& windows down,
of ice cream melting
& crawfish steaming,
of long, lemonade days
& slow, twilight walks,
of eating chilled watermelon on back patios
& drinking iced tea on front porches,
of gardenias releasing their perfume,
of honey suckling
& strawberry picking,
of running barefoot in the backyard,
of small, plump hands stained with finger paint,
& laying below a ceiling fan,
cutting through summer’s rhapsody.
