A free verse poetry, “Another Summer Day Begins.”
I live near a park, so close I could almost touch it. I watch as my lovely 9 years old daughter runs out to play with playmates. I try to show her how fortunate she is to have such amenities at her fingertips. I think it’s good to teach humble pie and appreciation for the simplest of things…For life to children. To never take it for granted. A free verse poetry and digital art piece to encapture summer.
Another Summer Day Begins
Summer heat scorches virgin skin;
she walks a furry creature.
Long-tailed scurrying squirrel dashes.
Stopping, turning, and chattering jibberish.
Laughter erupts from a sweet open mouth.
Lovely, spicy, spirited little thing.
Sun streaked, curly tresses bounce
in an August sun.
She is searching for the other ones.
Not the squealing things, crying and whining.
She is a bubble—bursting inspiration.
Repeatedly full of delight,
she pulls them to her energy like a magnet.
Quick, sparkling brown eyes find them.
What was one…is now four!
Running, jumping, squealing playful happiness.
Small wheeled vehicular toys provide entertainment.
And red playing field offers amusement.
And thus another summer day begins.
