The smell of summer,
Is my favourite scent of all.
In the morning,
The scent of dewy leaves and slick grass blades.
Infused with earthy undertones,
And the promise of new beginnings and fresh starts.
Then at night,
The sun gently falling,
Brings with it such sweet smells
Of Burnt leaves and wood smoke,
From camp fires and backyards so far away.
Its the smell of adventure and of cold nights,
Spent in warm arms.
