i dreamt of a summer of rest and freedom.
unrestricted by burdening commitments
unanchored by things to be kept the past
unthreatened by the things to come in the future.
i dreamt of a summer with warm sunshine-y days.
bright days with flipflops, tanktops, shades, and shorts
maybe some sensible excuse for cold creamy ice creams
or a bit more than many heart-warming free huggies.
i dreamt of a summer with Mr. Sun
topless men in Bermudas jogging
bikini beach babes sun-tanning
tropical mix of cocktails melting.
i dreamt of a free-spirited summer
birds dancing with the cool blowing breeze
radios playing happy feel-good tunes
days sprinkled with spontaneous house visits.
i dreamt of an anything-goes-summer.
busy doing “nothing”s
i dreamt of a summer with family, friends, and fun.
then, i woke up to realise it was more than just a dream.
