Simon says

red light green light

hand games

bike riding and


honey flowers

vacant houses

double dutch

jacks and marbles

bolo bats

and dance routines

were how we spent our summers

no road trips cause Mama was scared of doing things involving travel by herself

we played until night

we ate tv dinners

tony pizzas

chicken pot pies

shared tv’s

watched tales from the crypt

in living color

married with children

and 90210

summers were long

life seemed longer

time seemed to spread like wings

there was so much to do

so much to see

we were comfortable in being kids

full of wonder

we kept ourselves busy

in fun
