The summer sun is upon me and its rays pull the air from my lungs.
Two options are before me--
I can choose to curse each day the red line inches higher and higher, or i can accept the reality that change is eminent.
The seasons come--the good with the bad.

And instead of focusing on the sweat on my forehead, I will avert my thoughts to the heart-shaped sunnies over my eyes.
To the cotton dress that skims my knees.
To the polka-dotted suit that hugs my body.
The cool water that beckons me--jump in.
Never before were they needed so.
I will celebrate the river I float down, the watermelon I eat, the sandals I wear, and the roadtrips I take.
The Solstice has come.
Summer is here.
That's a fact.
I accept it, and I love all that I can about it.
Spring will always have my heart,
but summer has my 'now'.
Praise be to Willis Carrier.
