Me, two crows and the beach

Just me at the beach hut
the sea and two crows
And what they were up to?
Well I guess no-one knows
Suffice just to say that
at times such as these
this place is a haven
in soft summer breeze
There is peace and contentment
and I love being here
By the sea here in Sussex
at a place I hold dear

Everyday haiku

Brightening the glow
Summer knows no boundaries
Every day the sun

Too hot for the beach

It’s too hot for the beach I think
so in the garden I will stay
relaxing in the sunshine
on this August Saturday

It’s closing in on ninety
and though cooler by the sea
the thought of walking down there
is a bit too much for me

So I’ll sit here in the sunshine
with ice lollies close at hand
and see more of this summer
which has turned out so grand

Heat (haiku)

Sunshine glows golden
The summer of August shines
and heat continues

Marylebone

Sat outside in Marylebone
the summer evening warm
I think we’re getting used to this
as if it were the norm
Perhaps it is as it’s been weeks
since we saw any rain
and several months have passed us by
since summer time it came

Slow Season

There are paddle boards and kayaks
Inflatables and yachts
And barking dogs just running
and calling all the shots
There are diamonds on the water
glistening in the sun
with the sound of wavelets breaking
on the shore by everyone

The sea is blue, inviting
‘Cross the bay here on the coast
Cliffs of Brighton in the distance
as the people make the most
For this is perfect Saturday
the summer typified
the beach and sea and sunshine
keeping all here satisfied

Ever present

The sun has shone for several weeks
and England’s seen no raining
But I’ve been on the beach most days
so you’ll not hear me complaining

A child of summer, this for me
is perfect beyond measure
Blue skies every day and warmth
revealing summers’ treasure

May to June and then July
absent precipitation
Changing colours, grass and more
across the Southern nation

The beach hut’s open every day
more rays there to capture
Watching as the sun goes down
for sunset’s daily rapture

And though the breeze is cool sometimes
With colours effervescent
up in the blue with fortitude
the sun is ever present
