Summer Praise

Summer Praise: A Poem by Dalma T Perkins

Warmer days are coming in,

With skies of indigo taking

claim.

Sparks from bonfires coupled

the hissing of BBQ meats

make some weekends

complete.

The madness of traffic to

nearby beaches, never

identifying accurate GPSes.

Confessing that you have not

applied yourself to have that

tight summer body.

Rubbing yourself with loads of

oily concoctions.

Sweeping up from languidly

walks in sandy trails.

Hammering out details to do it

every weekend following.

Eagerly waiting for those early

sunrises.

Crawling slowly out of bed to

meet those adult responses.

Initialing off to-do lists that are

the work week duties.

Preparing oats to refrain from

overeating due to dinner parties

and happy hour freedoms.

Thinking of deadly roller coaster

rides and entering the tide.

Letting yourself become an en,

when you use to be an em.

Creating fantasy lives during the

short, short summer months.

Carrying all that is needed for fun

and games in cardboard boxes.

Hoping beyond hope summer

never closes.
