You are my favorite right next to spring. I like your long days. I like the heat and feeling the sun shine down upon us. Yes, it’s hot. I’m blessed though, Summer, because my house is cooled with air conditioning and I like to swim and we have abundant, fresh water.
Summer, I like the blooms you bring. I like my cheery flowerpots and I like pouring water over them. I like the sweet corn in our garden spot, getting tall. I like the vines of pumpkin and gourd plants stretching and curling out.
I like the season of farming even though it all hits at once and busy is upon us. I like harvest and I like watching the stubble fields turn over from the disc and lay there waiting for the next rain.
Oh, and Summer, I like the delicious fresh fruit you produce! Berries and peaches and watermelons. I like the cold of ice cream on my tongue, dear Summer. I like sliding into flip-flops every time I head out the door. I like grilling food and smelling the smoke waft from it. I like evenings on my front porch and early morning cool.
Dear Summer, you move so swiftly. We need you to slow down and offer a few more opportunities for lazy summer days. I want to watch the sprinklers dance and spray and smell the fresh mown grass. I need more time to swim and a few more chances to get the hammock out. I want to make another pitcher of ice cold lemonade and gallons more of iced tea.
Summer dear, linger longer!
Summer slips by too quickly! Always.
Days do that.
So, today we’re going to slow down and take time to celebrate summer before it does quietly turn to fall.
