Throwback Thursday

Thursday, May 25th 9:00pm

 

On a night like tonight,

I want to throw it back. Way back.

Way back to my favorite summer nights.

I want to throw it back to skip it’s, jump ropes, roller skates and bicycles.

I want to throw it back to the summers I ran around catching fireflies in glass jars.

I want to throw it back to the summer nights I thanked the street lights for holding out a little longer.

I want to throw it back. Way back

I want to throw it back to summer camps, wave pools, and capture the flag.

I want to throw it back to ripping apart packs of ICEE’s to find my favorite flavor.

I want to throw it back to mosquito bites, scrapes from falling outside, and awful tan lines.

I want to throw it back. Way back.

I want to throw it back to that baby weight that always disappeared from June to August .

I want to throw it back to that beautiful burnt red/orange my skinned turned after spending all 3 months in the sun.

I want to throw it back to falling sleep in my mother’s lap as she stayed up all night platting my summer braids.

I want to throw it back. Way back.

I want to throw it back to the slip & slide with the sprinkler in the yard.

I want to throw it back to neighbors and block parties.

I want to throw it back to my childhood summers.

On a night like tonight, I want to throw it back. Way back.
