Midsummer

When we went out,
The Sun was warm and bright.
It felt like the city was empty.

M was happy to sit in the pram,
Under her seat,
The bags full of goodies rattled.

In the park,
People,
Sitting on camping chairs, splashing with water, playing kubb.

No pole, no dancing, no rain,
But that’s not why we came,
Blanket, pasta; and a fork in M’s hand.

In the sandbox next to us,
Kids walk barefoot; spades and buckets,
And a ball.

Time passes by,
On a swing, a little hill, or a slide,
While loading the bucket with sand or trying to kick the ball.

In the evening – we are home,
The Sun still shines,
On our balcony little red flowers are turning into strawberries.
