Queens of Summer

June 18, 2012

Wide skies, cool lake.
Life jackets and captured frogs.
Three kid chaos,
sunscreen and snacks,
soul conversations snatched
on the stairs up the water slide.
Hamburgers on the grill,
corn on the cob,
jammy blackberries, and
big hats swooping down to frame
our glamorous shades from Target.
We may be mothers, but this
summer is ours to preside over.
