summer nights

Sunday, July 1, 2012


It was one of those nights when the humidity got the best of us. When we laughed and watched the fireflies wink at us in the open field. We may have been terrified of crawling under the electric fence, but everyone clapped when we made it. And maybe it wasn't the best idea to go walking in a field at dusk where thistles were willing to nip at our open toes.

It was one of those nights when we decided to sleep under the stars at the mercy of rain. We lay in a circle where laughter was the only language we knew of. Four different conversations going on at once and songs we made up about trees.

It was a good night, one of those summer nights.

  7. You have such a beautiful turn of phrase. We are not having a great summer over in the UK and this post has made me a) insanely jealous (even though I am not a fan of humidity per se) and b) nostalgic :( I miss these kind of days with my friends. New follower :)
