Ethan’s favorite sweater
The chairs in which I sit
The jeans that Joy always wears.
The endless questions my mom fires at me
The calming sound of the ocean.
Sweet, juicy, ripe blueberries
A blue raspberry lollipop
The cold, refreshing touch of popsicle on tongue
The exciting brush of ocean waves on my toes
Rain on my bare skin.
Cool, calm, refreshing… It's a lifelong summertime.
