Ode to Summer

The last day of summer,
a rainy melody of drums
lifts my spirits and walks us into fall.

Sticky sweet ice cream on a sweet baby girl,
pickles in a breakfast bowl,
guys, superheroes and gray capes.

New music written by my husband,
exploring a new city and 
discovering a new home.

Three calls but not ours yet,
prayers and intercession,
waiting and hoping.

Bandaids with pretend boo boos,
Do-Re-Mi,
and singing Joy at church.

Beet juice and Tinkerbell,
French fries with mayo and ketchup,
coffee with my papa.

A little girl's first movie,
a fun trip to the ocean
and a belly full of ice cream.

Splashing, swimming, jumping,
3,261 miles on the road
and priceless reconnecting with my love.

So long, farewell, 
auf weidersehen, goodbye
long sweet summertime days.
