Autumnal sun

I went back to the beach
though the summer was done
But there was still a warmth
in the autumnal sun
The sea was the same
with the waves a deep blue
reflecting the sky
with its colour and hue

And the peace and the solitude
down there with the sun
was perfect I’d say
with my working day done
So I sat there a while
and reflected that this
is where my contentment
borders on bliss

With Grace

Mine’s the only beach hut open
yet the sun is shining bright
The beach is quite resplendent
but there’s no one else in sight

Just me, the sea and seagulls
down there on the shore
The gentle sound of gentle waves
How could I ask for more?

So I am truly grateful
for safe haven in this place
For with it comes a joie de vivre
given free with grace

Tri-yellow

Halcyon feel of yellow
my colour every time
Happiness exuded
for my soul to shine

Yellow irresistible
the colour of the sun
with zest that has no equal
enlightening everyone

Epitome of yellow
found ‘most everywhere
Captured and then treasured
a memory to share

My Favourite Place

Silver on a glistening sea
Sings its sweet refrain to me
as I relax here blissfully
in my favourite place

Seagulls flitting on the shore
as silent waves come back for more
Applauding for a long encore
in my favourite place

Sun shines warmly in the sky
as summer passes slowly by
and tears of happiness I cry
in my favourite place

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
