D’Verse – Open Link Night ~ Week 128 – Summer


This morning the sun rose

Heralding another warmish day

I can tell by the glare

The way the light penetrates

Leaving brighter than normal


On the objects it falls on

The walls flash back at me

The floor sparkles.

In my mind I am preparing

When will I go out?

Where’s my hat?

Sun block?

Glad I mowed yesterday

Today’s shaping up a stinker

But this is our lot

Its summer

It’s hot

More days than not.

  1. Yep, I can so relate to the heat issue, the summer has final arrived!!! 🙂 🙂

  2. Ouch.. to have those days where it just stinks.. good to move the lawn when it’s possible…

    I can remember those kinds of days in summer, but I do think you are experiencing hotter days than normal there. We have had some years like that. You have captured the feel of the glaring sun. And I bet it must be HUMID too!

  4. Described what we are suffering very well Michael. It is certainly a ‘stinker’ down here even now 😦

  5. brian miller says:

    ha. you realize i am supposed to get snow tonight…smiles…i could use a bit of that summer heat to make it easier to get out and about…you keep me dreaming forward to it though…everything is damp and dead here…

  6. A great description of my favorite time of year…only 3 – 4 months of winter to go.

  7. RoSy says:

    I’m not a fan of extreme winter temps or extreme summer temps. But – right now – I wish I was there instead of here.

    • RoSy, jump on a plane and come on down, at the moment all you’ll need are your shorts shirts and sandals, I was going to say ‘thongs’ but that word means something else over your way, they are footwear here…..Thanks

  8. Gabriella says:

    Hope you soon have more temperate temperarures, Michael! I remember our last heatwave. I had no wish to go out.

  9. Tony Maude says:

    Tough times Down Under – too much heat and it gets really dangerous. A good time to stay out of the sun and write poetry. You could have some of our Scottish rain if you like … smiles

    • Thanks Tony, it is pleasing so many have offered me cold, rain and snow as a result of this poem. I would gladly have some today it will be about 41c. Have a good evening/day.

    It’s funny to read of sweltering heat when Jack Frost is wiggling his toes with vigour here. Stay out of the sun.

  11. We’ve had more rain here than much of the country can cope with. I’m sure some wold be glad to have too much sun, right now! I loved the feel of this – indolent – just right for the heat!
