Splendor in the Grass
Maura loved mowing grass in the summer. The sun beat down on her perspiring skin, sweating out sugary Twinkie poisons; robins followed her mower waiting for worms near the earth’s topside, and the drone of the engine drowned out everything but thoughts she wanted to mull over in her head. Under today’s July sun, she was remembering her date with Roger and the passionate kisses stolen on the Country Club’s lawn near midnight. She smiled recalling the softness of freshly cut grass cushioning shoulder blades exposed by a pink sundress. It’s true the smell of mowed grass can stay with you for years, for decades.
