Okay, I told you in my last post that technically my summer is over. And that is true. Once I set foot in my school, summer is done (for me). However, I am feeling nostalgic this week FOR my summer, so I am going to post a little more before I move on to some real life not as fun posts.
I have been thinking about the "poems" my kids
have written over the years focusing on a topic and the senses used to
explore that topic. So that will be my post today.
Summer looks like...
the ocean blue
brilliant sunsets as the day ends
lightning bugs flashing in the night
Summer sounds like...
silence (no alarm clocks!)
waves crashing against the shore
crickets chirping through the night
Summer feels like...
warm sand between my toes
a sunny day shining upon my arms
the cool pool water lapping at my legs
ice cream dripping down my chin
Summer smells like...
freshly cut grass
the salt water of the ocean
food cooking on the grill
basil growing outside my window
Summer tastes like...
Gooey smores, hot off the grill
ice cold lemonade
time to reflect.
I love summer.
