Summer, it is seen from the surfboard washed tens of thousands of time by the wave; it is seen from sunflower full blooming in July; it is seen from shiny dark tan skin; it is seen form swaying palm tree, it is seen from fireworks that once rushed to the night sky and then disappeared; it is seen from home of hermit crab on the beach; it is seen from figure who dance among fish in the deep blue sea; it is seen from slightly narrowed eyes because of the summer sunshine.
Summer should be blue, since blue sea blooms in summer. Wave is the favorite part for surfers; sun is the favorite part for holiday, beach is the favorite place for children; sea is the favorite part for divers. Ocean is the most beautiful scenery in summer. Every year in July and August, sea pulled people from big city to beach side—it is summer’s most beautiful surprise.
Summer should be green, since all plants stretch to the extreme in this season. Mountains have took off tender spring green, and put on a sparkling green clothes. The sun through the leaves dropped light spots on the soft forest land one after another, so that country people praise the beauty of the sunshine, while urban ones complain about its hotness. Summer is seen from mint leaves decorating the glass or the green lemon by the side. It is that green tone of the forest when you look out from window of the office.
Summer, go to the mountains! Mountain covered by green and rich vegetation is always filled with fresh air compared to the city. Leaning a roadside broken branches, with two or three friends, stroll between rain forest in the summer morning. Listen to the oriole’s song as well as the streams running. The world seems to quiet down for them. Big city’s noise stays in reinforced concrete jungle. When the night fall, families get together and put on campfire. The campfire illuminate everyone ’s smile, greets the happy moments. If you occasionally raised your head, and looked at the stars in the sky instantly, you will be drunk by the beautiful curious universe. Whenever we get lost, look up at the stars, and we will get a different answer. Frog’s tweet is the unique sound of summer. In the middle of the night that you can not fall in asleep, then listen to the frogs. Their tweets are monotonous but comforting.
Summer, come to the waterside! Wave swarm to the shore layer by layer, blue water first, then white foam. Urban people passing daily the fountain have forgot what the real wave looked like. Going to the beach has became to a customer: surfing, swimming, diving, playing. Sea is so blue: it breezes under the sun’s reflection; it vocalized loudly in the front and rear surging wave. Yellow sand is so bright: it arouses children burst after burst of laughter; couple left footprints side by side above. Deep in the blue sea, divers looked every detail of this different world separating from the land. Even the sun became suddenly far away.
