This summer…

this summer vogue chinaThis summer darling, make time for a siesta under jasmine trees while donning light white dresses.

Find the time to float amid water lilies while looking at the stars.

Make sure you meet Galileo to witness shooting stars together.

Stand under a shower of paper rain and be in awe of every firework show in sight.

Find the time to wear short shorts and to fall in love

…and dance barefoot to Lana del Rey under frescoes.

Make this summer, one of immeasurable time.

My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”

One day, after a long storytelling session at the flower hoarder’s, the latter spoke of him, and his eyes, while looking at the blue velvet hydrangeas which stood on her fireplace mantel. Continue reading

Dancing under frescoes
