Sunshine & wild ponies revisited

4 of 12 in the Jemverse ‘October’ series

Walking through the forest
I spied ahead of me
open fields and sunshine
and ponies running free
Some turned around at my approach
ears cocked as if to say
“Good afternoon to you upon
this fine October day”

I nodded an acknowledgment
politely as one does
for out here this is their domain
so its only right because
Here in the New Forest
they have the right to roam
for this has been for many years
their private English home

September 30th

The last day of September
summer’s waxed and waned away
yet with warmth still here around me
Autumn’s yet to have its say

There’s still time for shorts and t-shirts
and for sitting in the sun
for though the days are shorter
cooler times have yet to come

So as a child of summer
Autumn days can bide their time
for I’m still happy in the sun
whilst it stays warm and fine

Mid-September beach days

Mid-September with sun
took me back to the beach
to sit beside the blue sea
It’s lovely down here
sitting still with a beer
There’s no place I’d rather be

It’s a great place to come
and sit in the sun
Though now that it is mid-September
days like this are to treasure
as they come in short measure
for a summer to hold and remember

Tri-Haiku XXIV (fading sun)

Its autumn apex
takes the sun lower each day
as northwards I face

Summer ends but heat
remains in that strength daily
Save for lesser time

Shadows fall early
So now I must make the most
of a fading sun

Towing the line

I’m sitting in the garden
the sunshine’s nice and warm
Think perhaps I’ll stay a while
‘Cos this is what it’s for

Thought a little earlier
that I might work a while
tidying up the garden
but the sunshine gave a smile

Said that I would rather
sit down and with a beer
chill out and soak up all the rays
whilst I was sitting here

And as I’m not one to argue
when the argument is strong
I sat right down and grabbed a beer
and played there right along

Sussex Prairies

Sussex Prairies was a find
up near Henfield way
A lovely sculpture garden
on a lovely summer’s day
Yellow flowers in abundance
enjoyed by everyone
exemplified the sculpture
in the glorious August sun
And after cake and cups of tea
we took a new route home
Pleased this place discovered
Somewhere else to us now known

Tri-haiku XXIII (August)

The comfort of a
quiet morning in summer
August in England

Writing at first light
and then, as the sun rises
Chorus of the dawn

Welcomes in the day
as I do in readiness
with August sunshine
