Sunshine IV revisited

No.6 of 8 in ‘The sunshine series’ from Jemverse

It’s when those sunshine moments
catch you unaware
when beams of warmth come calling
and find you waiting there
And you are in your element
when summer calls your name
and dulcet sounds you’ve longed for
spring back to life again

In sunshine revisited

No.3 of 8 in “the Sunshine series’ from Jemverse

Lancing beach
the sunshine
the water, flat and calm
Lazy days in summer
the breeze, a gentle balm

People out
enjoying
conversation, light
Barbecues and beer
the sea, a lovely sight

In sunshine
in my element
a child of summer, me
Born under the yellow one
beside the Sussex sea

When thought lies in summer

In this dark of December
to this iron bone
when daylight is seldom
and sunshine has flown
And winter, vice-like
has me firm in its hold
bombarding my senses
with fingers of cold
My thoughts lie in summer
when June in the light
paints warmth over all
that it has in its sight

A little summer still

There’s yellow in the garden
a little summer still
despite the fact it’s winter
and we have November chill

So I’ll hold this to my heart
for its promise is right there
Reminding me that summer
will be mine again to share

The Circle II

This time of day it changes
at each different time of year
Certain little nuances
as morning time draws near

In winter it is brittle
with a chill upon the air
And this time you’ll find me wrapped up warm
with coats and jumpers there

In springtime it is fragrant
with a promise born of old
Summer’s child lies waiting
to bring respite from the cold

In summertime it’s warming
Windows open to the air
To find me in my element
with sunshine here to share

And in autumn it is whimsy
Halcyon memories are here
To remind me that the passing
of this time is drawing near

This time of day it changes
but the thought remains the same
Knowing that the circle
will repeat this time again

Summer in mind

A patch of wild flowers growing
in the churchyard yesterday
Reminded me that summer
wasn’t all that far away
And yes, I know it’s over
by the chill that’s in the air
Felt now come the mornings
seen by coats worn everywhere

And yet these little wonders
caught on camera for a smile
Serve as a reminder that
the sun brings us meanwhile
Beauty never disappears
It’s always there to find
And though the warmth has left us now
it’s summer in my mind

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
