summer toes

© Colleen Hilman

      Tip-top breezy leaves, pre-paper shuffling through the evening's loop and oopsa daisy. It's after supper, sun still hot and high. My feet throb from a steady diet of bare feet and flip-flops, the pain of which is made up for in wearing skirts day without end. I hear ... warm tires spooling asphalt, the bass of a good stereo in a cheap car, squawky birds too tired for sleep, kids yelling yards into grass stains, dishes to dishwashers, dust to dust. Chip-polish toes, ice cubes have melted, Anne of Avonlea, sticky knee and elbow crooks, oh the laundry can wait.

Summer toes are the best of all the toes. Especially when they're burrowing into soft warm sand or inching their way into pools of cool water.
