connect with something:
Drops of water condense on the clear glass. A cold drink on a warm summer evening caps a slow, restful, purposeful, day. Lightning bugs start to dance across the yard as the sun dips below the treetops.
You sip, and smile to yourself. Minutes blend into hours as the sunset turns to twilight turns to darkness. The brightest stars catch your eye and you are captivated. Droplets in the night sky. Serene and constant.
The breeze passes through the trees, past the fountain, to gently caress you. With it, laughter and joy dance among the leaves. Children weave together a game of invisible goals and make believe points. Partners share a longing gaze and an ice cream cone. Birds are fed and memories are born.
You raise your glasses to get a better view. You steal a glance as he walks away to get today's paper. You're laughing as he returns, amused by how some things never change. Strolling hand in hand, you caress his fingers, feeling his skin beneath yours.
Your quick steps move you down the sand towards your umbrella. Floating over the hot ground as you rush to the shade. Waiting for you is a cold drink, a throwaway read, and a slow aimless day. You recline as your toes lazily trace circles in the sand.
Music floats in the breeze intertwined with the ocean spray. Ice floats in your drink as soda mixes with lime. Couples float in each others' arms as the world disappears around them. You float off into an easy, restful nap, warmed by the sun and the tequilla.
