Welcome back

Sun broke through
the clouds at last
Said ‘hello’ once more
I smiled and said
‘Hello’ right back
‘What you been waiting for?’

It’s not been here
for several days
and I’ve been quite morose
All better now
it’s back of course
I suspect as it well knows

I think a trip
down to the beach
to celebrate is right
and I’ll stay there
til sunset sees the
evening turn to night

Redolent of the sun

Colours I remember
from when I was very young
Stayed with me into later years
with so many seasons come
But one has been a steadfast
for me a lucky fellow
The vibrancy of summer
captured in the colour yellow

It’s been with me through all the years
Born to the summer I
above all others constant
as many have gone by
So of all that I remember
Colours, lovely every one
Yellow is the best for me
Redolent of the sun

Back to the sun (1, 2, 3, 4)

One line here to capture the sun
Two lines now the day is all done
Three lines reflecting all of the fun
Four lines to bring us all back to the one

August

12 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months II’ series

And as we settle to this lovely heat
I find myself in summer sun
Relishing these warming days
filled with things that speak of fun

Through and through a summer person
I could live the year like this
as days of warming sunshine
are to me ones filled with bliss

Days are a little shorter now
but the sun’s intensity
could stay and keep the summer
here in perpetuity

[I started this series a year ago, posting a themed poem on the first of each month throughout the year. It’s a cathartic part of my writing, so I’m doing the same for the next year with a new series, starting on 1st September – ’12 months III’.  Closing ’12 months II’ off though, here are trackbacks to the others in the series]

1] September
2] October
3] November II
4] December
5] January
6] February
7] March
8] April
9] May
10] June III
11] July

Joie de vivre III

Just a simple glimpse
of yellow does the trick
to bring a smile and tear

Fills my heart
with summer sun
and joie de vivre and cheer

Tri-haiku XIX (Summer)

Now this summer sun
brings yellow to the fore
and I am shining

Now this summer sun
brings a warmth that radiates
and I am browning

Now this summer sun
brings a laughter to the fore
and I am grinning

60 (aka ‘Born to the sun again)

I’ve seen sixty summers
and have loved every one
For back in the fifties
I was born to the sun

A child of a Thursday
I had far to go
And I’m still on the journey
and still in the flow

I’ve memories a plenty
and a lot more to come
for this child of the summer
who was born to the sun
