I dread the lengthening of days, the long, lazy clambering of the sun, the way the space between each cricket’s chirp overflows its edges and bleeds the silences together. Another summer without you.
This post was made in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge weekend prompt, in which the editors asked us to describe summer in exactly 33 words.
This week’s challenge is community-judged! If you like my little piece, please visit the Trifecta site starting at 5:00 PM US Pacific (8:00 US PM Eastern) to vote for your three favorites. I highly encourage you to read the other entries – there are some remarkably talented writers over there.
