Dear sweet summer

I write this to let you know

how very much your presence is missed,

I know you were distracted when you were here

and your visit cut short due to pressing fronts

from the North, the time came when you had to leave.

it doesn’t make it that much easier.

the night grows dark so quickly when you are not here,

I miss your warmth,

the way you gave us a smile and laughter

long past bedtime.

you were the life of each party when you showed up,

I understand how you can be quite busy and for this I forgive.

please say you’ll return soon,

I miss my shorts and tee’s,

the dogs miss long evenings outside playing in the pond,

without you the hummingbirds seem to have disappeared,

maybe they went with you? Yes, that must be it.

anyway, I just wanted to let you know

just how much you are loved and missed.

like I said, come back soon, stay awhile and no offense,

but we grew weary of your pal the rain so he can keep his grey ass at home this time,

if you don’t mind.

also enclosing the key so you can let yourself in just in case I am not home.

yours truly,

the world.

  1. Still here in Texas. Golf during Christmas is still the norm. Getting wilted by it.


Your words are stars and I humbly thank you for shining your light for me....
