Split

13 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series

The sunshine in the harbour
as we arrived in Split
looked promising for our last day
to make the most of it

Montenegro yes and Italy
have been lovely at behest
but I have to say Croatia
has for me been quite the best

And another ancient city
awaits for us today
bathed in glorious sunshine
hip hip, hip hip hooray!

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

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

In sunshine

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 beers
and the sea, a lovely sight
