NaPoWriMo #3

Me and F. W. Woolworth Co.

The Woolworths on Main
Is where I found my summer dream.
It called my name;
I clung to it, had to have it.
It transported me when I wore it.

Delirious visions of summer
Floating through my head.
Sun drenched days spent leaping through the sprinkler,
Freedom!
Cold splashes of water, mingling with perspiration
On warm skin.
Running through wet grass,
Giddy and barefooted,
Water squishing between my toes.

I lived for those days,
Hot days,
Bold days,
Joyful play in the sun days.
