Poetry On Odyssey: In This Moment

That excitement you felt in February

Is now.

The snowy day that had you longing for sand under your nails.

That is today!

The pile of homework that mocked you all year long

Doesn't exist.

It is summertime.

The long days that filled your memories just a few months ago are finally here.

The faded tan is coming back.

But the season's visit is never long enough.

It is summer, right now.

Live in the moment.

Don't skip a day.

Be selfish with the sunshine and go easy on your troubles.

Live in your brown suede sandals

and run the conversations into the nighttime.

Live while it's still summertime.
