Chasing the Light

The sweet smell of lavender drifts on the warm breeze
and all the melodies come back to me,
of summer’s sweet songs.

Time slows down as I embrace the need to devour this thing called life.

A childlike longing to break the gold-tinged day into pieces
and slip them into my pocket.

To glut and gorge on sherbet-colored sunsets and cotton candy skies.

Each day given its portion of spectacular.
