Summer Weather

Wind blew battering the trees

Furious and fast

Stirring up the leaves

Howling a gale

.

Rain fell swirling with the wind

Hard and wild

Drenching the ground

Falling sideways

.

Sky was grey as slate

Clouds moving quickly

Letting go of their rain

Darkening the day

.

I wanted the sun

Just a glimmer of hope

A small rainbow to be seen

No such chance

.

The rain persistently falling

Grizzly weather

Felt like autumn

In the middle of Summer

It iwas an average sort of day

Unremarkable and unexceptional

Adequate in small talk

And tolerable weather

For a British summer

Nothings on a downer

As the lunch time comes my way

Weathers more acceptable

The sun has shown his face

It’s fair to moderate

One might say hunky-dory

And by the end of the day

Everything is plain sailing

Quite a decent day

In fact

It was all quite

What do I know?

So today’s NapoWrimo prompt Is to write a poem about things I know. There are a few of then :-

sea

The sun makes freckles appear on my face

I need my woollen hat when there’s an icy cold wind

That I can’t touch the bottom when I swim out at sea

That the blue Ink in my pen will turn black in time

.

When my mobile is on silent it won’t make a noise

Singing makes my heart happy,

And grey days make me sad

the strawberry top seashell is very special to me

.

I know where ever I am

what ever the weather

If I can see the sea

I know I am at peace

Chasing a space

Glorious weather

spend it outside

chasing a space

not easy to find

the sea is too far

the town too busy

i’m chasing a space

to loose myself

i just want some water

with greenery around

birds in the trees

the promise of spring

next week

when the weather is fine

I’ll be chasing a space

it will be the sea

to get lost in to ocean

soak up the rays

Contrasting Day

The bright blue skies have turned into light grey

The blazing sun is now hiding away

The blistering heat is now a cool gentle breeze

Cracks in the dry ground are huge muddy puddles

Stifling humid air has turned fresh and light

There is a newness to the grass covered in rain

I don’t mind the contrast it makes a nice change

Regardless of weather I’m still smiling

each day brings adventures all fresh and new
