The Things I Love That Haven’t Really Changed

Sleeping porches, swimming holes, riding with the windows down, wearing a one piece under my clothes, drinking from the water hose, garden grown carrots, farmer’s markets, wild horses, nights by the river, pontoon boats, old big houses to roller skate in, old-time painted portraits, the smell of old books, fresh flowers, railroad tracks, wishing on fireflies, filmy cotton, wearing boots, laundry on the clothes line, sleeping with the windows open, lighting candles when the power goes out, oldies radio stations, sun-dried hair, sweatshirts, the smell of the campfire, snow days, the county fair, funnel cakes, Black Forest, wicker furniture, bicycles with baskets, vintage tee shirts, six-lets, band shelters, banana splits, swing sets, harmonicas, blankets on hay bales, willows, & the smell of rain…
