Afternoon Rest

Work done
Afternoon sun
Deck chair calling my name
It’s offer of short rest I do claim
Nap Time

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 !

SUMMER Acrostic

Sunny days are here
Umbrellas now put away
Many take vacations
Mountains and beaches are visited
Evenings are often spent outdoors
Relatives gather at  family picnics
Time is made for outside activities
Indoors is not where most want to be
Music and laughter are all around
Everyone enjoys summertime

Happy First Day of Summer!  June 21, 2013

Come and Gone

June, it seems you just arrived,
Yet your 18 days are nearly gone,
only  12 more remain to be seen,
and then never more shall you dawn.

You’ve given me memories to cherish,
Adventures and surprises galore,
June, I will enjoy your daily presence,
Until you, or I, are no more.

Unwelcome Visitor

Sitting on my deck
Enjoying the view,
of clouds so white and fluffy
 and skies of brilliant blue.
Things seem so peaceful,
As far as eye can see,
Until a little spider,
Decides to visit me!

Pool Time

Sounds of children’s laughter
Fills the balmy  air.
Neighborhood pool is open,
Families gather there.
Splashing, swimming fun,
Enjoying life together.
Basking in the sun,
June is pool time weather.
