A lazy summer day;
Hot, dry, unbearably bright,
Fish swim aimlessly in the pond.
I sit in my cheap plastic lawn chair taking it all in;
Soaking up the environment.
Just me, the chair, and my book.
Peaceful, or so it seems.
I see it and groan.
Amidst the tall grass emerges a furiously wagging tail following a fast approaching canine.
Wearily I close my book and wait for the intruder to pounce.
With a ridiculous leap my solitude is broken.
Oh well, I should enjoy these lazy summer days.
It isn't long before I'll be bound to the constrictions of school.
I guess I'll enjoy this sweltering Texas summer;
Wagging tail and all.
