Poem #26

I remember how it felt as a kid
Anticipating summer vacation
It seemed almost magical
And almost endless
Even now, as a grown person
Summer can seem magical
If not endless
The smell of coconut suntan lotion
(Which is what we called it
Before it was sunblock)
Can put me right there
On a warm, sandy beach
Perfectly relaxed
Perfectly alive

I love the smell of Coppertone - zaps me to pool and beach. But summer goes too fast.
