Sitting on the porch
Riding bikes
baseball in the park
The hot summer sun beats down
Turning white into dark, freckled or red
Sweat beads and drips
Dust sticks to the skin
Popsicles drip
Ice cream slides
Onto hands gripping cones
The sound of sprinklers tic tic in the distance
The air is still and hot
Setting sun brings no relief
Fireflies burst into the night
A cool breeze blows in to settle the heat from the day
Sweet sweet summer
