Sun kissed!

sun-flower-1521864_1920

I claim June

for mine ;

a little Island at heart

through the heat it brings.

June 1985 I was held

in the arms of a mother

June was then my claimed place.

June 2008 I was held

In the arms of a man

I owned June for sure.

June makes me smile

for the colors I get to see

and dresses I get to wear.

June makes me cringeΒ 

for a year that never ends.

June has me dreaming

of a trip of my life.

June lets me dareΒ 

to be a little girl at heart

June has me seeing

my friends once again.

Then I say

I am sun kissed

by June

and all it brings.
