#Weather #Seasons #Summer #Acrostic

Summer sees me ignore the cirrus and and stratus

Taking in the rays peering through summers marshmallows

Reality is – something’s been smiling floating in the air

A smiling cloud, happy in the blue

Tears ? not today…and when Ra gets a little bit to fierce

A fluffy cloud and his chums are there to provide a bit of cover

Countdown to the beach

#freedomofexpression #iscriblr #countdown #creativity #beach

Countdown to the beach – (p) 2019 Brian F Kirkham

Soon it will be summer,

Under the shade we will be

Making sandcastles on the shore

Moments away from the sea

Expect a visit from a fish or two

Reacting as you dip your toes in the waters

Cooking Poetry Seasons Summer

Cooking off hot stones

the mercury rose again today

over at the campsite….they don’t need a match

just a circle of stones baking in the mid morning sun

plonking the pan on top and waiting

waiting for the small drop of oil

to start sizzling.

Summers Hello

#Promptuarium #Earlymorning #Summer

An early morning acrostic by inky

 

Summers Mornings

Unusually found the Son up before

Mum and dad

Maybe its because he

Expected the smiling sun to

Reach beyond the curtains and say hello

Shimmer v2

Shimmer

Several drops of sun protection

happily playing in the hotel pool

In the knowledge they’ll be joined by others soon

Moments of the summers appearance

Make rainbows appear on the pools surface as

Excited little sun oil drops get

Round together to play on the water

Out in the blue

San Rafael, Faro,, algarve , Portugal 🇵🇹

Sat at the side of the road

a grand palm tree 🌴 rises high

to say “Buenvenidos!”

to birds floating in gentle breezes

in warm blue summer skies

Shallow

Salford, 29th July 2017

Shallow

Some say its easy, splashing your feet along the sea on a

Hot summers day, but its important to be

Aware of your surroundings

Lots of people like to dive into that

Long stretch of blue water –

Only they know their limitations

When they wade into it – don’t go in too deep!

Sunny

Sunny

solar winds beating down

umbrellas not required…unless it’s for shade

north to south, the sands perfect for

new sandcastles built by little kids

year by year on sunny days

Frying

Fry

Out in the Grecian sun

whilst sausages are cooking in the chefs pan

turning brown from pink

the restaurants recipients

are lying on sun loungers

or sat on coral sand beach

worshipping Ra above

in a vain attempt

to mimic their luncheon.

Cotton candy

Salford 9th April 2017

a sweet poem for the color your world challenge by inkdropk

#poetry #confectionery #cyw #coloryourworld #cottoncandy #candyfloss

 

whispy wires of candy

softly rising into a soft tornado

gathering in pace as it goes

 

sensational sugar collides

against the  tornado catcher

fallen to be reused again

 

whisps gather pace

collecting speed and sugar

as a sweet cirrus begins to grow

 

floating sweet dreams

fly high in the air

caught by the ice cream man

 

man looking in has to use great skill

to gather the coloured pink cloud

to create smiles on waiting faces
