Summer’s Personality

She blew in on a spring breeze bringing sunshine and warmth to any space she visited. She was a continuous smile and she had an uncanny ability to gift meaning and memories individually; special in her own way to everyone. She was giving but wanted nothing in return.

She knew when to retreat and allow things to cool: a relaxing rainy day. She would remain absent just long enough for people to miss her and wish for the return of her smile. She would return with an all-encompassing love and warm caress. Never sad as her days grew shorter and her time grew to a close. With a soft sigh she takes a long slumber leaving fond memories in her wake.
