A poem reminiscent of summers past. This is another simple self-reflection exercise that anyone can do, using the five senses for inspiration:
I taste the heat.
I smell sometimes flowers, sometimes trash.
I hear barking and a hose running.
Dogs play in kiddie pools, and I reach out to them as they run by, happily chasing each other.
I see brightly colored murals along the El tracks.
I walk home, where it's cool inside and I'm alone.
