Summer Sports Quotes

Swimming through raspberry jello
Not as smooth as I thought it would
Riding the tide as I shout whoa

“It’s cold,” she chides, but so good
Maybe just a bit more, I decide
Not as smooth as I thought it would

Such bright day, nature’s on our side
Like giving a tithe of our time
Maybe just a bit more, I decide

Trial to think of words that rhyme
Sun, sea, sand and waterfall
Like giving a tithe of our time

Better than hanging in the mall
On a day like this with friends
Sun, sea, sand and waterfall

If life’s like this, I’m contend
Swimming through raspberry jello
On a day like this with friends
Riding the tide as I shout whoa*

* Terzanelle

There once was a dolphin from the sea

Who’s fed up of swimming, likes to ski

To the mountain he goes

Too much for him he froze

He changed his mind went back to the quay

This dolphin still not satisfied

Some places and things to do he tried

Didn’t matter he’s big

Thinks of himself as pig

Or perhaps he just needs a new bride**

** Limerick

the world is my oyster

I love travelling

free as a bird as I make my way to them

places without limit

I love travelling

anywhere I’m allowed

brave as I could be

trotting, flying, swimming, walking and shopping

trying different things

brave as I could be

I holler if I could

glad to be awake

bones to inspect, natural beauties to see

I hate it when I’m late

glad to be awake***

*** The Double Ennead 

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “The Peach” by Alice Friman: peach, sticky, sky, know, juice, corner, earth, numb, orange, ice, tend, disappear

I like eating ice-cream in the summer

Cycling in the park, watching the swans

I know Him Indoors is a great runner

With orange swimsuit she’s a stunner

Taking a nap under the palms

I like eating ice-cream in the summer

The sky is peach in midsummer

Him Indoors like stripes in our lawns

I know Him Indoors is a great runner

Sun disappears, snow-in-summer

I tend to listen to Mozart and  Brahms

I like eating ice-cream in the summer

The earth definitely  needs a plumber

Let’s count the pros and cons

I know Him Indoors is a great runner

In the corner is my Hummer

Sticky barbeque and salad tongs

I like eating ice-cream in the summer

I know Him Indoors is a great runner****

It’s sunny in Bavaria. Yesterday was gardening and cycling day. I have been Him Indoors’ undergardener for a couple of days now. I helped him plant some dahlia, geraniums, petunias, built the flower tower and our little herb garden.

Nice taking photos of our lovely flowers in the garden.

And then we cycled around the village, passing through rapeseed fields. A great day indeed!
