Summer Fruit

NaPoWriMo 2022 // day 16

send me some summer fruit—
cherries, and sun-kissed
blackberries
treasuring between the thorns
and cloud puff blossoms

send me some summer sky—
changeful
and blistering
with rays that force us under,
under water
and under tree shadow

send me some summer myth—
the care-freeing
and the cross-country road trips
down the highways
smelling of oil and asphalt,
and the chapped-lip belief
that summer fruit
under summer skies
was all there was
