Summer reminds me of you

a poem by Jovan Abigail Saldanha

Summer reminds me of you-
Of tree houses and swings,
Of ice candy and raw tamarind;
Of collecting sea shells and hoarding marbles,
Of bruised knees and tiny squabbles;
Of afternoon naps and make believe games,
Of bedsheet tents and keeping names;
Summer reminds me of you-
Childhood left behind
