joys of today

first day back at school
little hands clapping
bright eyed children, delighted to be back at school
intense scent of pollen, thick in the dusk evening air
the smell of barbeques, as people revel in the heat
appearance of a new multitude of freckles on my skin
sunshine, sunshine & more sunshine
freshly baked brownies
the sight of my craft supplies strewn across my living room floor as teenage girls happily decorate new note books, ready & waiting to be written in
crispness of clothes that have dried in the sun
