Goodbye Summer

my toes in the sand
the sun on my face
the smell of the ocean
the sound of the waves
a swim in the water
a book by the sea
picnics and barbies
ice creams and beers

the long summer days
i’ll surely miss
as days grow shorter
the air, a bit crisp
the leaves turn red
the water, slightly cool
as autumn approaches
with its splendid hues

    Warm like a summer this poem
    awesome these lines are
    Weaving words so well
    You are talented no doubt
    A smile blooms on the face
    As I finish the read! ?

    Even if you will miss summer now, Sanch, the words you have chosen so beautifully make the entire change look so appealing….something to look forward to!
    Pretty picture!
