Writer's Block: Long Nights, Short Poems

It's the winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere, summer solstice in the Southern hemisphere, and Haiku Day in the U.S. Does that inspire you to write a three-line poem with five syllables in the first and last lines and seven in the middle line?
Hmm. Nope. No poems. I didn't enjoy poetry in school and still don't. I don't like to have to guess at what someone means. I'm from the "say what you mean or don't say anything" school of thought. :)

I do like thinking about long summer nights though. I wish I were in Australia right now. I wish I could afford to go to Hawaii every winter. I wish I lived near the ocean where cold weather is rare and it stays sunny most of the time. I wish I were wearing my brick-colored shorts with a tanktop in a light shade of peach, with my bare arms and legs stretched out to soak up the sun and the scent of my green apple body spray mixing with the salt breeze from the ocean. I can almost feel the wind in my hair as I run down the beach, letting the warm, salty, ocean breeze stir my heart as wind stirs the sails on boats nearby. I want to run until I can't anymore. I wish I could lean back on my lounge chair and just enjoy the rhythm of the waves, letting them loll me into a gentle rest.
