夏はどうしてこんなに切ないんだろう

その世界では何もかもが完璧に思えた

夏が好きだった。日本の夏が

虫あみを握りしめて、キンキンに冷えた水筒ぶら下げて、1日中走り回っていた

いつからだろう。お金を使わないと楽しめなくなってしまったのは

十字路の自販機前で友達と待ち合わせて自転車を走らせる。

「今日は隣町まで行ってみよう」

それだけで胸が踊る冒険だった

入道雲が天高く伸びる昼下がり

素麺を食べながら、夏休みにしか見れない昼ドラをのんびりおばあちゃんと見ている時間がたまらなく好きだった

育てていた紫陽花の鉢を抱えて、ありったけの教科書を詰めたランドセルを背負って帰った下校道

近づく夏休みの足音に胸が高鳴っていく

広い空も、降り注ぐ蝉時雨も、田んぼに伸びるあぜ道も、裏山の秘密基地も、駄菓子屋の当たりも、転んでできたすり傷も、全部が当たり前だと思ってた

そんな当たり前が全部、当たり前じゃなかったって、大人になってから分かった

太陽を浴びた土と草の匂い

夕立の後のアスファルトの匂い

雑木林を漂ってくる少し酸っぱい樹液の匂い

夏は色んな「匂い」がする


ヒグラシの声に包まれる夕暮れの帰り道

友達と別れを告げて

遠くでどこかのお祭りの太鼓が響く

今日の夕飯はなんだろうか

換気扇から漂うカレーの匂いにお腹が鳴った

「何歳から大人になるんだろう」

親父に聞いた

「それは分からないけど何歳になっても心は子供のままなんだ」

その意味は分からないままでいたかった

蚊取り線香の匂いと居間から漏れる優しい光に包まれてウトウトしていく

本当はもう少しだけ夜更かしして大人の気分を味わってみたいけど、いつも気づいたら夢の中だった。

子供の頃はあんなに大きく見えた小学校のグラウンドが、雑木林が、公園が、川が、今はやけに小さく見えてしまうのは、大人になってしまったからなのか。物事の道理を知りすぎてしまったからなのか。常識を常識として捉えてしまうようになってしまったからなのか。

今年も夏が来る

またいつものようにクーラーの効いた部屋でゴロゴロするのもいいかもしれないけど、少しだけ子供の頃に戻って冒険をしてみようか。

青い空と入道雲の下で

もう一度世界が広く見えるように

ちっぽけだった自分に戻れる旅に出ようか

  • Simply wish to say your article is as surprising. The clarity in your post
    is simply spectacular and i can assume you are an expert on this subject.

    Well with your permission allow me to grab your RSS feed to keep updated with forthcoming post.

    Thanks a million and please keep up the gratifying work.

  • With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced
    but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know
    any solutions to help protect against content
    from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

  • I do consider all of the concepts you’ve introduced on your post.
    They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for newbies.
    May you please extend them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.

  • Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was
    just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any
    support is very much appreciated.

  • Right here is the perfect site for anyone who hopes to find
    out about this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need
    to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject that has been discussed for years.
    Great stuff, just great!

  • Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations
    for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?
    Cheers!

    However, think about this, suppose you composed
    a catchier post title? I am not saying your information isn’t good., however suppose you
    added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean 夏はどうしてこんなに切ないんだろう
    | JAPARNEY is kinda vanilla. You might look at Yahoo’s front
    page and see how they create article headlines to grab
    viewers to click. You might add a video or a related picture or
    two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created
    myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up

    an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
