Child of the summer

To sit in the sunshine
now summer is here
brings me fulfilment
coupled with cheer
For this is my time
I’m at one with the sun
a child of the summer
now winter is done

Jimi

And here’s me listening
with nigh on fifty years passed
New sound from Jimi’s sweet guitar
still giving me a blast

“Both sides of the Sky” – a new release
in twenty eighteen
Music still gives me goosebumps
however it may seem

Sweet listening pleasure, simple things
I’m in my element here
Star-spangles live on through the years
for those who have an ear

“Both sides of the sky”  was released on March 9, 2018 and is the third release in a trilogy of posthumously released “archival recordings” from Jimi Hendrix who passed away in September 1970. The trilogy also includes ‘Valleys of Neptune” (2010) and “People, Hell and Angels” (2013).

Spring

Counting days til sunshine
and the pleasure that will bring
with long hours at the beach hut
in the warmer days of Spring

Diamond Days

Some days are diamond
the sea and the sky
azure blue with the sun
up there on high

Some days are damond
more precious than gold
when a sunshine embrace
brings me in from the cold

Some days are diamond
every once in a while
just there in time
for a beam and a smile

Some days are diamond
and I’ll laugh right out loud
for these days do justice
and serve my heart proud

If I said…

If I said that I loved you
would you take it as that
Would you just take my word
and accept it as fact
Or would a small smear
of clay on your hand
confirm my intentions
like a seal or a brand

If I said that I loved you
still all these years
that we’ve been together
through joys and tears
Would you smile in that
most inimitable way
which though words sometimes falter
a smile will convey

Graduation II

We’re on a train to London
all the girls and me
for another graduation
this time for Emily

We’ve goodies in a goody bag
and flat whites – good to go
that, and conversation
which we’ll always have you know

We’re heading up to Regents Park
North London, near the zoo
most of us together
for more fun times, woo hoo!

You can never have too much yellow (revisited)

6 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘Yellow’ series

You can never have too much yellow
for it’s the colour of the sun
And I’d challenge you to disagree
it’s not loved by everyone

For me that’s going to be the case
for as long as I can see
For it’s synonymous with summer
Where I so love to be
