Those Golden Days

*waves* Hi y'all. Yes, I missed Friday's post. Yes, I am aware of this. *sighs* All right. Well, I have a short post for you today, and a quick announcement.
The announcement first ... I'm taking a bit of a blogging break in January. I may still do an occasional post, but not on Fridays, and don't expect much. ;)  All I have planned is a cover reveal post, so that may be it until February. Oh, wait, I do have one other post. But yeah. Nothing big. ;)
 I just need to take this month to focus on editing and catching up on a few things I've gotten behind on, and then hopefully when I come back in February with some more blogging inspiration!

Well, now that I have that done . . . I thought I'd share a poem that I wrote a little while ago. *cringes* Now, I am not the best at poetry by any stretch of the imagination. If you want awesome poetry, head over to Julia's blog. 
I pretty much was just re-living memories one night, and I had to jot down a few thoughts. And . . . this is what the final product was. I  shared it with a couple friends, and they loved it, so I thought I'd share it here.

Those Golden Days 

You know those days.
You do. 
When the sky is the limit,
and life seems to be an open book
waiting for you to fill the pages. 
The days when running 
with your hair down
feels free
as though,
nothing is standing in your way. 
The golden days
in the summer
when worries leave
and you can fly.
Those days,
they're precious
and they leave too soon.
They're a memory
till one day
the sun shines
the wind calls
and we can run
and be free.

Like, this is me in the summer. I love driving out into country and just running between fields. Thoughts?
