Born to the sun VI

Born to the sun and born to a beach
which I'm going to now 'cos it's in easy reach
and today is my birthday and I'm sixty-three
so a day in the sun makes good sense to me
I'll be there with the Beans so it will be the best
for good conversation, some laughs and the rest
and this evening much later to Brighton we'll go
for a meal and some beers to conclude the show

In the sun II

Wolfgang on the garden bench
panting in the sun
whilst I sit down relaxing
now my working week is done
The warmth today is growing
so whilst I am sitting here
he's given his permission
for me to have a nice cold beer

One IX

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

Maybe May will find me
on the beach once more
as warmer days get warmer
and summer waits in store
Maybe May will be the one
to see those doors flung wide
for long days in the sunshine
no more the place to hide
Maybe May will see these things
as they're the thing to do
for the fifth month and summer
are quite symbiotic too

Summer in April

At the end of April, summer
made an early show of hand
as the sun shone warm on Sussex
fair across this pleasant land
So I put a best foot forward
took advantage with no shame
once more into the hedgerow
bordered pathways, trails and lane
Exploring parts of Sussex
I had never been before
in this lovely springtime sunshine
as that's just what it is for

Magical

Twelve scribings revisited; 6 of 12 in the Jemverse series ‘Malleable Days’

Magical this influence
of Mother Nature’s hand
blessed with a dose of sunshine
all across the land
Springtime knows no boundaries
her hand is everywhere
painting all with colour
for everyone to share

First Daisy II

First daisy down there
in the grass
waiting for me
as I passed
Radient with sunshine flare
I took a pic
to onward share
and with the green
a painting framed
as gilt-edged it
the Springtime named

Sunshine XII (tanaga)

Found a pool of golden sun
knew that Spring had now begun
and I'd once more found the one
proving winter blues are done

once again head over heels
a poor Romeo

and the radiance around
as throughout each day you tread

with magical qualities
to restore the soul
and rekindle brighter things
for more tomorrows
