August bliss

bliss is the scent of the blistering sun
sweltering in NoVA's woodlands
our invitational dips 
in the neighborhood's chlorine reprieve
refreshed with good friends

bliss is week-long madness 
with family under one roof
funning shoreside 
winning prizes
but the real swag lies in 
our intimate cold brew moments
as simple as making brekkie 
as easy as prepping banana leaves
for the evening's kamayan celebration

enchanted august
teeming with birth anniversaries
we rock & bop
in smashing delight
