The return of the summer in southern suburbia
The beginning of months of
And itchy bug bites.
A day that marks the end of hibernation
For your favorite white shorts and dresses.
A day of remembrance
And backyard barbeques.
The start of bright and warm nights,
Watching the neighborhood from the top of my mailbox castle.
Living the hours once spent in the classroom in the sun.
A change in mindset.
The kickstarter to the season of
And even now,
What are your favorite memories of Memorial Day? How have you traditionally celebrated this summer holiday?
