We drew our inspiration from Robert Frost’s poem because the things we love and want to hold on to are sometimes fleeting, leaving us with only trace memories. For instance, a sweet kiss, the memory of holding your mother’s hand, a hug from someone you used to know—anything we wish could just stay in our lives a bit longer.
As we collaborated and discussed we thought about summer. We often anticipate its arrival and when summer is coming to a close we’re left with some beautiful memories. Summer for us gives us memories of beautiful golden light, slower paced days, barefoot in a field, abundance, and as Frost describes, “nothing gold can stay.” So as we are trying to hold on to the last moments of summer we understand that its sweetness will become distant cherished memories.
