Basketball in Summer
by Gabi, age 8
We leap into the air like kangaroos in shorts
As the ball swishes into the net with the sound of whooshing waves
The air is redolent with the scent of daffodils on the night breeze
I taste the scent of coldness as winter creeps near
As I dribble the rough velvety basketball in my bare hands
