Today’s Daily Prompt is about seasonal scents.
S’mores, salty ocean breezes, veggie burgers on the grill, sweaty people on the bus — what’s the smell you associate the most with summer?
Here is my take on this in poem form.
Summer is here, smells are in the air
Fresh cut grass, flowers blooming,
Leaves blowing in sweet wind
Even the sun has the smell of warmth
Grills lit around the neighborhood
Meat cooking, corn grilling
Sounds of children laughing
As chlorine clouds drift from the pools
The smell of a summer storm comes ever closer
Rain cleaning the air
Leaving behind smells of damp earth
Puddles to splash in
Drives to summer fairs,
Hot pavement smells lead to
Cotton candy sweetness, fried oils
Turkey legs, sausages and beer
Summer fun has its own smells
Sweaty bodies packed close together
Swaying to your favorite band
A few short months packed with good times
Good friends, great smells
Go out and enjoy!
