Summertime, and the Living Was Easy

For DVerse’s Haibun Monday today, we are considering summer. I have been thinking lately that the summer season really should start before the summer solstice, maybe on June 1st. 🙂

I remember the excitement of mid-June: class parties, signing yearbooks, summer break coming soon. Family vacations we used to take, big birthday parties with cake and other celebrations, Fourth-of-July fireworks. Completely carefree days. And then, the dread of another August ending. 

remember those days,
                 summertime the pinnacle 
                         of kids' existence

  1. Summer time to school kids, be it primary, secondary, or high school, is like an entire lifetime — bigger than reality, more exciting than the heart could embrace! And August was a dirge.
