The Last Day

Summer Vacation

I've enjoyed your visit,
though you were a bit chilly at times,
nipping at my toes and arms,
complaining, I imagine,
of the effort required to bring the heat.

Thank you for the lazy
stretched out
the jewel-toned
perfumed garden,
the kiss of the sun on my cheeks.

I will miss the twinkling
lightning bugs,
evenings that reached into mornings,
extra time spent
with those I love.

I look forward to your next visit.
You're welcome to stay longer
if you wish.


  1. Becky, these peaks into your heart are a real treasure to me. This was my favorite line from this piece:

    evenings that reach into mornings


  2. Thank you, @ngie!

    I started this post in prose and it just felt all wrong.


I would love to hear from you!
