That was summer.
Remember that time
when you glanced down and saw a stingray
swimming beneath you.
And you didn't know what to do.
And your snorkel started filling up with water.
That was summer.


Remember that time
when you witnessed the dolphin swimming
toward you.
You walked closer and almost feel it.
When you felt the splashing hit your skin.
That was summer.


Remember that time.
When you went down to the beach with your family
and let your kite out
let all the string out and....
it snapped
so you chased it till
it went down
and got caught around a rock
then you got tangled.
That was summer.


Remember that time.
you were eating raw fish
coconut cream dripping down your face
Disappearing.....
Into a big white stain on your new t-shirt.
That was summer.
