Here comes Friday

And with morning three words came
'Here comes Friday' my waking eye
with silent whisper
said, I beamed
The sunshine decided September
had still more summer to give
warmth remaining
here it seemed
And outside my window the golden one
waved gregariously from the East
with its hat on
Comfort gleaned

September storm

Watched whilst bathed in sunshine
as the storm it gathered strength
and the sky out there grew darker
knew it'd soon arrive at length

So we packed away the beach hut
in sunshine heat still strong
as we both knew it would change soon here
and there'd be rain before too long

Still, it had been a jolly good one
this mid-september heat
tho the thunderstorm still lurking
would not admit defeat

As before we made it safe back home
though now sheltered in the car
the rain arrived in buckets
thunder rumbling from afar

And lightning lit the darkened sky
as with cacophonic sound
the storm we'd seen at distance
consumed everything around

September sun heat

September sun heat
no denial of fact
twenty-five degrees celsius
attesting to that
So it was back to the beach
to sit in the sun
at Saturday teatime
til evening was come

Sound of the waves
breaking surf on the shore
as we 'hutters' enjoy
what the beach is here for
and the ambient peace
something we always find
helps us relax
as we sit and unwind

One I

1 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months V’ series

One for the first day
now of September
but it's still summer here
something to remember

One day past an
August now gone
and though it's still summer
it won't be that long

Til autumn's upon us
with the brown and the gold
and a last breath of warmth
before onset of cold

But let's not now on
the coming days dwell
for we've plenty more summer
to come you can tell

So here with these lines
and September, day one
we raise our heads skyward
to embrace the sun

Summer’s sweet encore

4 of 10 in the Jemverse ‘On the beach’ series

Eight thirty in the morning
the sun warm on my brow
in September shorts with
the summer still somehow
The sunglare on the water
the millpond of the sea
and overhead the cloud free sky
means here’s the place to be
The beach down here at Lancing
on England’s southern shore
here for one more day at least
for summer’s sweet encore

September Sunshine III

2 of 10 in the Jemverse ‘On the beach’ series

So I’ve not written ’bout the beach
for quite a while it seems
but today is quite appropriate
with all these new sunbeams
For it seemed the summer left us
when August’s evening came
yet now it’s back and shouting
lest we forget its name

Thirty plus they say today
good reason to return
in this September sunshine
and feel its warming burn
A good day for the beach hut
beside my lovely sea
with lapping waves and warming sun
to keep me company

Reason to sing

1 of 10 in the Jemverse ‘On the beach’ series

I took a week off
it was a good choice
as there were good things
in which to rejoice

For starters the sunshine
decided to stay
and reboot the summer
in every way

The temperatures rose
to thirty or more
so it was back to the beach
‘cos that’s what it’s for

A September summer
is a wonderful thing
and with no work to do
good reason to sing

September Sunshine II

Sitting in the sunshine
outside my house is great
especially this time of year
with shadows getting late

As north facing out the back
by four the sun has gone
hidden by the apex where
in summer months it shone

Yet out front I bask in glory
and can stay here for some time
for there remain some hours yet
of mid-September shine

September sunshine

An hour of gorgeous sunshine
before the clouds come by
and hide again the golden globe
is perfect where I lie
It’s just enough to heal an ill
or chase some blues away
so I’m hoping that I’ll see some more
on each September day

Thursday the third

September, a Thursday
it might shine, it might rain
but one thing’s for certain
that this third again
will not be repeated
it’s a one-off, unique
which we’ll not find again
wherever we seek

So I thought this should capture
in these lines and a word
a small celebration of
this Thursday the third
