Longer days of the glorious sun
leaning into north
illuminating the earth so bright
bringing clear blue skies alight
And on the shore of Lanikai,
two bask in warmth:
Dare to bare—
of the golden sand.
The scent of ocean, the tang
the aroma of mustards and molasses—
In summer air,
freedom is found.
Summer is the effortless influencer:
lies in simple things–
I dare not
to be grand.
