Summer colours quotes

Breath of fresh air, summer colours

Chains and others

Stories and more

With love and care

Summer colours all for sharing

Stars are shining

Roads to freedom

As we need them

Swim, cycle, run and quench our thirst

Having fun first

Meeting people

All so regal*

  • The Minute Poem


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Pink Waves” by Sawako Nakayasu: wave, moment, clatter, flesh, wild, names, lower, shake, arrows, hit, happened, geometry

Shake the cold and welcome summer

Wild waves hit and so much laughter

Swimming suits with flesh stunner

Forget worries and hear the clatter

Forget names just be a drummer

Geometry, chemistry, newcomer

Fun things happen all for summer**

** A Monorhyme


Cold beer on a hot summer night
In the park where we can fly kite
By the lake where swans and ducks glide
With the brass band they play so well
In the park where the weather swell
Riding our bikes oh such joyride
Eating sausages and French fries
Oh what a night such clear skies
And the joy of being outside***

*** Nove Otto

Time when he used to pick up potatoes
Land’s End eating fish stick in the eighties
Him Indoors! Him Indoors! His youth
Dashed to the truck and that’s the truth
For its bounty Cornwall is the best place
Him Indoors perhaps grateful for the grace

Three summer years he would go to Cornwall
Gather up the wood, anything at all
Flyaway! Flyaway! To lanes
His shoulders ache, forget the pains
To the sea on his free day hence
Flyaway from home to gain experience****

  1. Your pictures are scrumptious, Lady Lee. It looks like you are having fun. I love your red sandals and all your beach scenes. I particularly like how you started one of your poems with the quote, “Cold beer on a hot summer night
    In the park where we can fly kite.” Great way to use the quote. Thanks always for linking. Glad you’re back from your break but I bet you wish you were back there again. 🙂
