Summer break is winding down.
We've been out of town
since the last weekend of May.
ebbing and flowing.
Can't believe I haven't yet said those words.
For so many summers
they have escaped my lips way before now.
But like a thunderstorm in the distance
I can feel them
They aren't quite ready to come out.
But when they do
"Gosh, I can't wait for y'all to go back to school!"
