you always arrive so unexpectedly and I always catch myself enjoying your company only when it's already the midsummer. I know that you know how much I love Spring and how I'm always claiming it to be my favorite season but I hope, summer, that you know that I love you just as dearly as I love spring.
Dear Summer, I love your sunsets which are never as pretty as they are when you're around, I love sleepless nights, I love that you let us show our legs to the world and walk barefoot and you make it warm enough for us to walk around. I love, Summer, that you and wind are such great friends and when you're around, wind always blows so nicely and is pretty much always warm. I love, Summer, that you bring us the storms with lightnings and thunder and quick but very strong rains. Dear Summer, I love that when you're around, the road always seems big and promising and there is always something to look forward to. I love your mornings when the entire city is light up by the precious sunlight and there are these moments when it's still fresh to be outside.
Thank you for those blue, red and pink berries you offer us and that you let us enjoy sea, rivers and lakes. I love the sounds of chirping birds and wind blowing in the grass, Summer. I love that we can create memories even on the work days and that there are many experiences coming our ways, especially the kind of unexpected ones which turn out to be the best ones of all. I love having the chance to walk barefoot and show my toenails painted freshly with the nicest blue nail polish. I love the smell of freshly cut grass and love the feeling of putting my feet in the sand or the sea. There also isn't feeling like being in the field and listening to your favorite band with sounds echoing through the forests around.
Oh and Summer, you know, sitting on a dock with my feet hanging over it and drinking fresh coffee is an absolutely wonderful feeling. Smiles are bigger when you're around, music sounds better and food is tastier.
And there it is that wonderful smell after the quick Summer rain when you just walk down the streets wearing sandals and drowning in the water a bit and without the umbrella because you, of course, left home unprepared for the rain because it was too hot to be outside before you left home. There are also these incredibly hot nights when it's impossible to sleep and you just toss and turn the whole night but I don't mind it, Summer, when those nights are around, I get the chance to spend some time thinking about things more.
You remind me of freedom, of possibilities and of happiness, Summer. I only wish, dear summer, that you could stay around for a bit longer because when I get to enjoy you to the fullest, it's already autumn coming up to take your place.
