Summer

summer nights
of comfortable warmth
thick with adventure
an irresistible force
carnival rides down at the fair
where 4H kids primp prized livestock
race cars blaze around a track
pounding a thunderous powerful roar
deep-frying grease
mixing the smells
beckoning foods festivals sell
driving home
all the windows down
familiar tunes blaring
through half a dozen towns
to bonfire smoke
wafting toward the moon
full as it is
on its perigee
amid voices recalling
fond memories past
fireflies flash
summer’s breeze blows
moments in time
now mentally froze
