Singing birds and laughing children
Summer sounds seep into our senses

Friends, family and neighbors socialize
Backyard shaded lounging chairs
children playing nearby

Summertime sunshine and outdoor adventure
Fishing at dawn on smooth lake with dad
Swimming, volleyball, of course no teacher
Playing and riding bikes 'till called in for bed

Warm days... balmy nights
barbecues and campfire talks
moments together
friends, families and neighbors
good company and laughter

Thank you James. Yes, and I remember they weren't super big deals, just gatherings, everyone chipped in, no drama, just fun. I may be looking back with rose-colored glasses but I don't think so.
