Last day of summer

Summer has come to a close.

The end of sunscreened noses, sticky popsicles, and wet puppies in the yard.

Of sizzling sand, shrieking kids, and cool movies on a hot day.

Of chlorine in the hair, lemonade stands, and juicy hot dogs.

Until next year... for now, the school bell will ring, books will be opened minty fresh. Fresh pencils, paper, backpacks, lunchboxes, and especially new teachers. Tales of summer past. Camp stories, not-for-grownup stories. Crisp new clothes, new shoes, and perhaps a little bit taller than three months ago.
