Writing Prompt October 2nd: Take the Heat! – Here Comes The Sun


*Image found HERE

‘Tis the season down my way

for the sun to be a comin’

warming the land, warming our hearts

Giving the weeds the boost they need

Keeping us hopping in our gardens.

It’s the time to look forward

Embrace the magic of a future.

The long winter hibernation is over

Sunlit days stretch ahead,

Love is there in the hearts of men and women

The mating season is underway

Lovers coyly size each other up,

Courting rituals begin

Feathers are ruffled and finery displayed,

There is just cause to be optimistic.

From early morning to last thought at night

One’s lover is forefront in thought.

The need to connect so strong

We reach out to surprise and thrill

Uttering proclamations,

Promises of undying love,

Commitments to last a life time.


We crave connection, belonging,

Knowing someone loves us

Listens and is moved by the passion we display.

Confidence grows, we push forward

Embracing what’s been missing these cold barren months

Enfolding yourself in the warmth and care of a loved one.


Priceless when you have it.

You grasp and treasure

The moments you have.
