My Peaceful Seat

I’ve a seat in my garden
where I can sit in the sun
as it sets in the West
when the daytime is done
It’s just the birdsong and me
and the soft evening light
An admirable setting
to sit here and write

And when the words are all done
and my pen is quite still
I will sit and be peaceful
‘Til I’ve had my fill
It’s a wonderful place
and I’m grateful for it
My seat in the garden
in the sun where I sit

Found by the sun

Went for a walk in the park and the sun
found me with a smile
exuded in a wide sunbeam
stayed with me for a while

Watched it as it settled at
the end of a long day
The sunbeams caught me squinting
and I waved at them as they
settled in the slumber that the
westward evening sky
had laid for it in waiting
as I wandered slowly by

Sunshine IV

Sometimes those sunshine moments
catch you unaware
when beams of warmth come calling
and find you waiting there
And you are in your element
as summer calls your name
The dulcet sound you’ve longed for
returns with life again

Sunshine III

Sunshine is my solace
and a tonic for my soul
It reminds me who I really am
and helps to keep me whole

Sunshine breathes new life in me
and I can never have my fill
For as a child of summer
I will pander to it still

Sunshine is my kinship
and will always be a friend
And I would be in heaven
if the summer had no end

April Sunshine

A cream tea with scones
in April sunshine
Temperatures rising
and everything’s fine

Flowers are blooming
with scent on the air
Springtime takes hold
with substance and flair

And I’m in my element
now it has begun
Relaxed in the warmth
that comes from the sun

A synergy born

The spirea’s in full bloom
with its blossom abundant
and the warmth of the sunshine
means Winter’s redundant

And I’m pleased about that
It fills me with joy
Something I realised
when just a small boy

That as a child of the summer
the heat of mid-June
from the warmth of the Springtime
cannot come too soon

I come alive in this weather
when the sun climbs up high
and the clouds are all fluffy
and blue fills the sky

So the spirea, when it blossoms
forms a synergy here
Which always reminds me
that summer is near

Springtime Cheer

It’s in my garden again
the yellow that speaks of the sun
Forsythia glory shouting aloud
that Springtime has begun

And the green is lusher too
Winter fades away
The grass upon my lawn suggests
it’ll soon be mowing day

The time for that will come
but for now the yellow’s here
Replacing all the winter blues
with lots of Springtime cheer
