Summer Night

Trifextra: Week Seventy-Two


It's been a while since I've written anything.  Thirty-three words sounded like a good way to climb back on the wagon.  This week, I actually had a thought.  I have been lurking around, checking out the prompts, reading some of the stories, and not commenting as I should.
Life has gotten in my way.  Very annoying.  Hopefully, I can get back to this more often.
I miss it.
This week's prompt: This weekend we're asking you to describe summer in your own words. Thirty-three of them exactly, of course.

still, damp air clings to my skin
 like morning dew
as I float on the green tinted scent
 of freshly cut grass
drifting to sleep on the rise and fall 
 of locust song

  5. Just beautiful! My dad used to mow the lawn early on summer mornings, to avoid the heat. I remember waking up to the sound of the mower and the scent of cut grass. It was my favorite way to wake up in the summer.

  12. I think you should continue with your chosen vocation. :)
    Break-throughs usually come after those quiet, frustrating times when pen and paper seem as chalk and cheese.
