My string of summer haikus

Summer obsession,

Tall glasses of ice tea

And lemon wedges

Hot sunshine, damp nights

Chlorine flavored pool water

The high diving boards

Tan lines and sun burns

Aloe lotion and ice cream

Short shorts and small tops

Popsicle kisses

Orange stained lips, cherry chap-stick

Sparklers and fireflies

Hot asphalt, bare feet

Postcards and gross camp food

Long car rides and talks

Summer love and hurt

Little swim suits and wet towels

Beach bangs and bleached hair
