It's Summer and I'm Twenty One Again

A sensory nerve catches a chord upon the wind Home alone, I raise the volume ‘til I’m reeling Fingers snapping, feet tapping, hips gyrating Just the right song to dance as boredom sets in “California Girls”, blares on the radio I hear! In an instant it’s summer; I am twenty one again, Not a care in the world not one reason to refrain Slippers fly off feet as book is tossed in the rear I have no care whether I am seen per chance This song saturates me through and through Caught up in the moment of its upbeat groove I lose myself in youthful summers as I dance ~*~

The joy really comes through in this poem, as does the nostalgia for those youthful days. The Beach Boys were terrific! Great entry for Barbara's contest, Annalise. Love, Carolyn

I remember seeing the Beach Boys at Madison Square Garden years ago. This piece brings back some nice memories. Do you live in California? I live on NY's Lower Est Side. Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

Hi, a beautiful poem. I could feel the youth of you in the lines. To be b21 again? Maybe, maybe not. Thanks for your comment on my work, Jancarl

Are you describing a trip through the Twilight Zone? You have good descriptiveness and rhyming in this work. I think Barbara will like it.
