Poetry Friday: Summer Break

It’s the first Friday of summer break. While school got out last Friday, I was busy with school related activities through Wednesday so yesterday was the true first day of summer break.

I offer up a list poem about summer and my plans:

Summer Break

Try to make each day last longer
Read
Collect paint samples
Discover a new BBQ joint
Eat lunch that acts like dinner
Nap
Write and revise
Head to Idaho
Experience small town Americana
Fireworks light the sky
Read
Watch the crocosmia bloom
Invite hummingbirds to sip its nectar
Play at the coast with grand girls
Sunsets, fire, and s’mores
Nap
Paint the bedroom
Write and revise
Attend Camp Odell
Reconnect with college friends
Read
Gather garden delights
Scatter beads
until they create a necklace or bracelet
Write and revise
Nap
Try to make each day last longer

What are your summer plans?
