Summer Girl

When you’ve lived in darkness for a season, sunlit days — when they finally arrive — seem thrice more vivid, more golden. For a time, the sun chases away the storm clouds, and though you suspect that they linger just beyond the horizon, for now they are out of sight and the sky is clear. The world is glowing and you are glowing, too — sun-warmed, colorful, brilliant and bright. So dance, Summer Girl, and laugh and dare and play. Try on happiness like a gaudy sunflower hat. Summer’s days are numbered; you know that all too well. For today, embrace the warmth.
