Summer

 

Summer brings heat

it scorches, sears, makes dry

summer flowers beneath the sky.

I need cool sea breezes,

the feel of sand beneath my feet.

Ease the pollen sneezes

with ice cold treat.

Thanks, Sue. I've got to admit I struggle with learning poetry forms, and even more in writing to their rules.

Thanks, Mike. I wrote this a couple of weeks ago but forgot to post it.

I love to explore all sorts of poem. Writitng them is funnier and more productive than playing word-play games I think. This one is a star. You did a great job on that.

Honestly, Derina, I struggle with poetry forms, but occasionally I'll give them a go. Glad you enjoyed the read.

I miss the 44C days of summer at the moment. I haven't felt the sand beneath my feet for years. Maybe I should visit my daughters on the coast when it warms up, but who will mind my mischievious cats.

That's always a problem with the pets, Craig. Thanks for giving this a read.
