Neon Days

Simple lemons, basic limes

on the counter, light scented.

The citrus emotion of neon days

when work is a way to pass the time

and the pool begs for you in the backyard.

The evening waits to chat on the back patio,

warm sunset hues making your lemonade sweat.

Your skin tingles to the song of crickets,

your torches burning Citronella to keep

watchful mosquitos at bay.

Your skin feeling so exotic,

so free being so bare.

And even the simple fruit

freshening your kitchen and your drinks

know these are the best days of life.
