Barefoot Summer

free, free at last
summer’s started
jump into it fast
ready, open-hearted

kick off those shoes
put on that tank
that’s what I choose
mind goes empty, blank

lounging lazily
pool of azure blue
raspberry tea
the soul to renew.

free, free at last
summer’s started
jump into it fast
ready, open-hearted

inspired by Magpie Tales.  jump into summer by joining the fun!

Your profile rejects Happily Ever After, but your Magpie reveals happily Ever Present. Much better, lovely images.
