At the Beach

Waves rolling in

Ocean roars

Seagulls cry

Kites rise in salty air

June’s Farewell

Everyone was complaining,
“When is summer going to come?”
The 65 degree weather
Was really not summer for some.
“Where is our sunshine ?
We want hot sunny days.
We are tired of the cool,
And the rain, how it stays!”
So today summer came
In a rushing wave of heat!
The temperature is 100,
And everywhere the sun does beat.
Now no one  is saying  “Yay!
Summer finally did arrive!”
No.  All I hear is “Turn on the AC
To 65 degrees, so I can survive!”

Farewell June, on your final day you
are surely giving us a day to remember you for!

Pool Time

The sun of summer has finally come,
And the neighborhood pool is now home for some.
Shouts and laughter can be heard from afar,
As people gather to swim and to spar.
The pool seems to bring out the child in everyone,
It fosters creativity as games are made up and played for fun.
Adults, as well as children, laugh, splash and play.
What a wonderful family activity on a hot summer day !

June 24

June, today you are twenty four,
And soon, you will be no more.
I wonder what your final days hold in store?
What adventures will you have me explore,
In the next six days, before,
July comes to shut your door?
