Small Town Summers

barefoot, careless days, on the river
tan lines, mixed drinks, children playing
trendy music, tailgates down, good friends
laughter heard long after sun goes down
bonfires, drown worms, everyone relaxing
small town summers

  1. Think I'm hearing John Mellancamp's 'Hurt So Good'. lol. Thanks for stopping by and the compliments.

  2. All of that sounds like a great time in your words!

  3. Lovely! Reminds me of my youth. Nothing quite like small town summers!

  4. I hear John Mellancamp's voice when I read your poem or, is it Kid Rock, I don't know. I am a small town boy myself so hanging out and being real has always been where it has been at for me. I enjoyed your poem. Thanks for being such a consistently good writer. 🙂

  5. Sounds warm and inviting. Reminds me of a Southern summer.
