The air becomes warmer, the sky turns fluffy white and blue. The mornings are brighter and the first thing you think is, ‘I think I’ll get up early.’ There is nothing dark and heavy and you don’t want your blankets to wrap around you tightly. You just want to be outside. That’s when summer comes.
And it comes in all its glory, bringing is hot circle of fire arcing across the sky, heating and lighting the world, scaring away the shadows. There is no sign of wind or rain. There is not a single jacket or jumper in sight. Just blazing pale flesh and dazzling smiles with sunglass covered eyes.
Beach brollies, beach trips, trips to the sea. Tanning and beach volleyball, relaxing by the sea. On the beach with friends, family and random strangers you vacation. It’s a holiday. It’s a summer holiday, no worries or stresses at all. You feel the warm sea water against your legs. You smile at no one particular.
You rejoice, thriving in the summer sun, basking in its beauty, with all heart and soul. It is the light against dark, lighting your day. No amount of office work or uni work or school work can dampen your happiness. You stare out the window and forget about the rest. Summer is here, you know.
