Of sunny days
Dissolve as the dark clouds linger.
Each day summer’s warmth is cut short
This summer we have not seen many sunny warm days.
The weather has been usually cool and even rainy.
Our fruit and vegetables have been aching for sunshine in order to ripen.
Each day I check the Weather App and smile as it tells me the high will be 80-85 and then as the day progresses my smile fades as the sun stays hidden and the temp doesn’t rise as predicted.
I keep hoping though that one of these days I will see summer arise again!
Roses are abloom
Among fast growing green grass
Baby birds in flight
Sunshine visits us daily
Summer finally arrived!
(Celebrating the First Day of Summer!)
The time has come
May’s skirts rustle as she tiptoes
Through the dancing tulips
Sowing seeds of florescence
Carpeting the world with flowers

Waking to the sound
Of a dove’s soft cooing,
My sleepy eyes delight
At sunshine, and the morning
Sounds of baby birds.
Taste awakening anew,
I touch life boldly
Smelling it’s fragrant winds that
Promise new life again.
#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 25–Prompt: write a poem about a specific season using all five senses
“Raining cats and dogs”
PDX in the winter
“Soaked to the gills”
#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 10–Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that starts from a regional phrase, particularly one to describe a weather phenomenon. You may remember one from growing up
Miss Moody March marches merrily
Away again as April approches and
Rises, returning resplendently radiant
Cancelling cold, creating colorful, cheery
Happy, hopeful habitats. Hallelujah!
Basking in the warmth of her sunshine
I walked awhile with March
Dreaming of hot summer days
Until she led me through a glen
Where winds blew cold
Thru shaded trees
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. —Charles Dickens
