Making the most of that precious

opportunity, when in the field

out of the last rays of sun, just before

nightfall – Luna makes an appearance

down below her – the children skip and jig

and above them – feathered friends flap excited as

night begins to fall

children will be called in as shades of red turn dark blue, so

enjoy the time in the long grass, they will

Aquamarine

They say its the true colour of water

but by the time you’ve had your cordial added

the fruit has fizzled it away

It sets of a summer holiday perfectly

as the sun reflects its blue

and you wan’t to dip your toes

on perfect days, the sky mirrors the sea

and its like the sea begins where the sky ends

wonderful to look at from a deckchair

of course, the jeweller likes this colour

its the birthstone thats usually surrounded by diamonds

so its no wonder he likes it

or the colour of the eyes of the young lady

whos entered his shop

to purchase a ring with this precious stone

The visitor

#birds #summer

Sparrow

He landed last night

having visited someplace sunny

having spotted the green and blues and pinks

he decided to stay around for a while

The locals were friendly

advising on spots over the fence

where for a little bit of effort

you could get a really good feed

You could find a spa up and down the road

bird baths a plenty in this town

and lots of alternate accommodation

if the lodgings were too tight

With new friends met, and food in mounds

our friend’s decided to stick around

and the others think he’s not a guest

he’s family – living in his own new nest….

Some say “take it easy”

even if the sunshine is full in the sky

destination sun lounger is the place to be

after all, you’re not working for a week or two

time to enjoy the sunshine

elongated on your own sunlounger

Small Creatures

#writephoto

Stood on the shore in their finest attire

Mum dad and little un

All leaving a trail on the sand

Looking out for the funny coloured seashells

Likelyhood is they’ll find you first

Crab like creatures

red, black or white

enter the range of view

as they pop up to say hello

taking a step left and sometimes right

until at last they

reach the waters edge

expect them to take a

sly nip of your wellies as they pass you

Sunglow

#CYW #Sunglow

Some say its the colour of the sun,

under the summer sunshade as it

nips down toward the horizon – heading to a

great mass of sand on the other side of the earth –

longing to see it again – the sunworshippers

often seen watching dipping down past the waterline

where it gives a few last rays of light before the moon arrives

Autumn Nature Poetry Seasons Summer

Summers End

There’s a definite change in the air

although he’s there – you don’t see the sun as much

longer nights, shorter days

expect the palette on the trees to change

on the whole – there’s signs that winter is on her way

frosty mornings covering fallen autumn leaves

a mass of crispy leaves amass

under the trees that once held them

to the wildlife its a sign to check the supplies and get

under the covers till the arrival of spring

munching on supplies before drifting off to sleep

night owls staying by their nests

#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.
