I chose summer as my prompt following these instructions from Josie:
This week YOU are going to come up with a prompt. I’m going to give you five words or phrases to help you get started. Think of a prompt based around that word or phrase, write a post based on your prompt. So for example the first word I’m going to give you is “Summer”, so your prompt could be “My memories of Summer as a child”. Get it?
So I thought that as it has been years since I wrote a poem, I would give writing one ago (oooh er!), and with the weather being so beautiful at the moment I chose the prompt of summer. I wanted to describe how it makes me feel inside, the sense of well being it evokes and how much pleasure it brings to us all to see the and feel the warm sun. It’s as if summer is a magical season, because sunny days make people feel happy, more relaxed and at peace with themselves. It also brings people together in outdoor social gatherings from BBQ’s to festivals to beer gardens. For me, it also brings back memories of summers past; of my childhood and my family and friends – all of which are happy times.
Sunlight sparkles all around me,
like diamonds shiny and new.
Dancing sunbeams pirouette
casting shadows where they fall.
I lie down on daisy clad grass
arms outstretched, eyes closed;
happy summer memories come back.
Blue skies deep like an ocean,
scantilly clad with fluffy clouds.
Shimmery rays caress my skin
wrapping me in sunny euphoria.
Children’s laughter fills the hazy air;
new summer memories being made.
The glowing sun starts to set
and the twilight sky erupts,
ablaze with vibrant colours
its final incandescence unveiled.
Like a work of art hung in a gallery,
it paints the beauty of mother nature.
The world seems a better place
when the golden sun luminates!
Heady days are here once more;
magical summer days.
