hi. happy summer!

i’ve pulled the summer dresses to the front of my closet
and i’ve started wearing shoes, sans socks.

this morning i saw a momma bird
feeding her baby birds
and i giggled aloud on a downtown street.
it’s possible i looked crazy.

this past monday i spent near eight hours at the beach,
i laid in the park in the summer sun.
i grilled hot dogs
and i ate frozen cream.
i drank beer on a patio
and sipped tequila after dark.
i played frisbee
i ate popovers
and i walked through
i didn’t already


it felt like summer. in may. and for all that,
i’m glad.

xo, n

(or winter) things have you been getting up to?
