Poem: Summer Magic

I’ve been having some winter blues lately. I miss the warmer weather, so here’s an ode to my favorite time as we approach it once again.

I like the cold weather

we don’t get much, so I soak it up

I like big cozy sweaters

and when I can wear my thick, corduroy pants

but I love the warm even more

when the beach trips are often

and the sun is out all day

and I spend my days leisurely


I like puffer jackets

and long cardigans

I like boots and fires

and the smell of the crisp, cold air

but I read the best books in the summer

listen to the best music

I stay up later

and the silence of the beach is a comforting ease at every hour

I like comfy blankets

and the gently icy renewed mornings

I like the crunchy sound of walking on the grass

and I like the winter holidays


but I love when the sand is terribly hot

and the ocean is cold and refreshing

some days the heat is miserable

but most it’s just what I need


I love big loud sunglasses

and bright color combinations

I love riding with the car wide open

windows down and sunroof open, music blasting from the radio


I love it when all I wear is swimsuits and tank tops

I love when my hair turns beachy blonde

I love when no one cares about how they dress in a grocery store

I love when 75% of my diet is that ripe summer fruit


I love pina coladas and tropical smoothies

I love dinners after a full day of sun

I love the anticipation of the drive down

I love when it smells like coconut sunscreen everywhere you go


I love it all, every single bit

but then the weather turns cold again

and I wait another year

but I know that summer magic will always be worth it
