Sunny days, summer haze

Poetry Project time! The line was Sunny days, summer haze. Wrote this one alongside my gf, Crystal!

(ok, what is this poetry project? Well we both write a poem using the same line! You can suggest a line or I can suggest it, and then we get writing!)

Here we go!

Poem #1 (hers)

Sunny days summer haze
Treetops swaying in the wind
Green grass pretty flowers
All abloom on the hill

There you stand by the stream
Throwing rocks in freely
How I wish I could be
Carefree as you seem to be

Butterfly floating by
Jumping from flower to flower
You chase it through the grass
Laughing happy as can be

Growing taller every day
Maturing in front of me
How quickly childhood flees
Gone in the blink of an eye

Time passes so briskly
It won't be long until
I'll yearn to ponder these
Sunny days with summer haze

Poem #2 (mine)

She retreats to her favorite spot,
A loungechair under a rainbow printed umbrella,
And blissfully soaks up the heat.
Her long blonde hair and sunkissed skin absorb the sun, while
the aroma of her favorite flowers float through the air.
Condensation runs down a glass of iced tea, while she hides
her big curious eyes behind oversized sunglasses
A folder full of paper and a pencil rest on the arm of her chair,
waiting to be opened.

For there is poetry deep within her waiting to be discovered.

Oh how she loves sunny days, summer haze. 
A time to sit still and reflect,
to write and to heal.

She takes a sip of her chilled tea, 
blinks her curious blue eyes, 
takes a deep cleansing breath, 

and opens the folder.  

We hope you enjoyed!!
