Laid Back

In winter I wait for summer
to unwrap myself, to
wear shorts and sandals
to sit outside drinking iced water
reading one book from my winter stockpile
to buy large cups of iced coffee
and overstay in a coffee house
to indulge in too many frozen yogurts
to while away time as if it will never turn
into another season
Summer is a time to entertain possibilities

On hot and humid days
I dream of trout fishing
of learning fly tying knots
with names like Beetle Bug and Bimini Twist

But, just collecting the names is enough
