Spring into Summer

Another Free Write Friday prompt from Kellie, so here is my post. Please check out her blog as the responses are always enjoyable.

curvey road

Some feel no real kinship to Winter
Like me there is a dislike for feeling cold
As a child snow might have been welcome
I’ve no use for it, now that I’m growing old.

Springtime comes and turns things green
Birds return, flowers bloom, changes show
But too comes weather unsettled and wild
Hail and rain, twisters and wind will blow.

Now we start into the days of Summer
I still prefer the heat as it warms my bones
Maybe it’s the boy trying to get out once again
Mind alert trying to run, as even my body groans.

Give me the days that grow longer even tho hot
I’ll straddle the cycle and not count the miles
Just enjoy each moment and bask in the sun
Not caring if there might be bugs in the smiles.
