I Miss…

I MissI Miss….

   …summer nights and lightning bugs…

      …bonfires and flaming marshmallows…

         …bare legs swinging over a front porch…

               …frozen cherry koolaid in pop bottles…
                         …tomato sandwiches fresh from the garden…

I Miss….

   …thunderstorms and power outages…

     …slanting clapboard sheds full of make-believe…

         …camping out in backyards…

                …ghost stories passed down from older generations…
                          …cackling chickens in their old-fashioned houses….

I Miss…

   …hot summer nights in cool sheets…

      …talking into fans and giggling at our voices…

         …babies playing on hand sewn quilts on hardwood floors…

                 …popping bushels of beans accompanied by gossip and tales…
                           …rubber balls rolled back and forth across a living room floor…

I Miss…

   …pickup trucks and dirt roads…

      …tractor rides and creek beds…

          …climbing hay bails and trees…

                  …oil barrel chalkboards and cinder block classrooms…
                          …hay barn apartments and straw brooms…

I Miss…

   …childhood dreams made real…

      …grandma’s lap and a book…

         …grandpa’s cattle trailer turned make-believe school bus…

                …barefoot summer days on squeaky floors…
                       …a carefree childhood full of imagination and wonder…
