First day of Summer!

Sunshine greets me,

Throughout the day.

Once again,

Beach trips and picnic thoughts arise

With temperatures.

Sweet Summer

Sweet Summer-Senryu poem about Cotton Candy
Original Photographs and Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

Wrote this after purchasing a package of Betty Crocker Cotton Candy Cookie Mix and Betty Crocker Cotton Candy Frosting. 
Cookies look, taste and smell just like cotton candy!  They reminded me of visits to the fair in the summer where we would always get cotton candy.

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
