Breathing In

It's summer! A car rolls by
with a surfboard on its roof.

The scent of the sea begins
from over the next few hills.

Extreme heat has passed.
There is just enough breeze.

The sun is now a lover
with a warm, gentle caress.

Who could be sad - not me -
on a day like this? I'm glad

to be alive, and here,
breathing in the summer.

    1. Rather you than me! I am glad you enjoy snow; I'm afraid I hate the cold.

    1. Yes, and the temperatures have fallen a little.

  3. Even as far inland as we are, the ocean breezes help to move our air. Though now it is winter...here. Though today I was out in the yard without a coat. Restocking the wood pile on the porch for the cold week that is predicted.
