summer shade

miko's backyard. a neigbourhood park where we sat under a big willowy canopy. spots of light trickling through the leafy awning. Sun beams tickling our bare knees. trees weep sap that run like veins down their cracked bodies.
“let's climb trees!”
sandals off. barefeet.
sticky limbs and toes smushing little soldiers racing over the nectar patches.
tiny hands that hail the skies. two tennis players glistening in the far end of the park.
surveying our kingdom. miko's turn to climb a tree.
“i'm stuck!”
“oh really?”

true story.

the village

we two silly girls decided to make a spontaneous trip out to visit the village. clad in our summer wear of rompers, freckles and mischievous smiles- we skipped onto a 28 bus to a lonely island where people are constantly taken to and fro. on the second bus, miko fell asleep nodding away, missing the quay.

the village.

summer's last pale rays kissed the brick buildings and black iron benches.
we looked for nuts, bolts and mason jars (more on that later!)
but that only lead us to taphouse 
with beers and sangria swishing in our bellies and greasy mouths to be wiped- we'd say that it was a beautiful day. a beautiful day to be in the village.

summer toast

here’s to:

an indian summer. the flutter of short hemlines and the glide of maxis. the sound of flip flops. the dribbling volcanoes of gelato in our tiny fists. all the cool rad stuff happening in town. the endless pitchers of sangrias, mojitoes and golden beer. successfully navigating through a throng of people eating with pointy sticks. my sweet blue Raleigh. marches around the seawall. backyards. the grass imprints latticed on the back of our legs. the low humming whir of the fan. cracking spines of books. fleeting summer loves. the ocean swallowing bodies whole. naked people on the beach. the lingering waft of banana boat/ Coppertone. the waterfall of sand that drops from your bikini bottoms. salt-combed wavy hair. squishy seaweed between your toesies. sweet sun kisses across our noses. last few rays of sun and the remains of trampled castles. we heart you summer.
