#WritePhoto – Summer

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

I love summer
No really, I do
Even though pollen
Makes me achoo!
The gardens look green
The flowers bloom
It’s time for shorts!
(I need to groom)
The sun coming out
The clear blue skies
As temperatures soar
To unheard of highs!
The sticky discomfort
As humidity settles
Watching sadly
As plants lose their petals
The sun disappears
Who turned out the light?
As rain starts to pour
From morning to night
The moans from us all
That it’s too cold or hot
We’re never just happy
With whatever’s our lot!
We should be used to this,
One form after another
After all this is
The Great British Summer!
Ritu 2018

    Some people will always have something to moan about. But as long as they moan about the heat, I am fine. I rather join in when it comes to moaning about too cold weather… lol!

    “It’s time for shorts!
    (I need to groom)” – why? What’s wrong with au naturale?

    Great poem. I also love summer, even though I live in Alabama. The temperature is in the high 90s to low 100s, with 90% humidity.
