Seducing the Summer

Seducing the Summer

You walk up to my door, survey the front porch where Spring and Autumn mix, mingles and dances circles on the floor in front of you. The smell of flowers and winter rain lingers gently, lazily, like children playing in your hair, like butterflies after the storm… So I...
