Summertime

I want the summer sun to warm you
Your chapped cheeks smoothed to a golden tan

Flowers to bloom smells for you,
a kaleidoscope of red, blue purple and yellow
to pick and give with your little hand.

The grass to grow thick and soft under your toes-
(to guard from past spring’s mud).
Stems green as emeralds for your eyes to feast.

Seeds to pinch and bury 
As I dig up a worm for you to ponder
And squish so delicately. 

A shady tree to call for you, lower it’s sturdy limb to climb. It’s arms to shelter you 
from the heat. A slight breeze to catch you for an instant, cooled ever so lightly- 
caressed. 

A dragonfly to catch your eye- land still but for the hello wave of its wings.

Free of time and space and life’s uncertainties-
As I look on amazed, 
inspired by you.
