Autumn in the air.

Autumn in the air.

There are blackberries in the hedgerow

And a chill is in the morning air

The red berries are starting to show

Seems Summer’s left without a care.

Conkers in their protective green spiky coats.

Laying expectantly on the ground

The days are getting shorter

And leaves are falling all around

Autumn is a coming I feel it on the air

Summer’s preparing to fold up her deck chair.

Thursday Photo Prompt. Summer

This is part of Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo Prompt.

Summer.

Days when we were young

Stretching out forever full of fun.

Days of freedom days of sun

Days before life became undone.

Summer fields green and white

Blue skies with feathered clouds

Sounds of voices, happy, loud

Summer days before we grew

To see summer with eyes no longer new.ūüíú

Lune Day 19

At Kat Myrman‘s suggestion,along with Jane Dougherty, I’m trying out the Lune form this month. The Lune is a three line poem, either 5/3/5 syllables or 3/5/3 words.

Let us Lune for June

Summer will

Be here very soon.

The sky is clear  blue

Summer fun down to the beach

Arrival brings rain. duporth2

Summer sun shines  high

Sandwiches on the front lawn

Fun under blue sky

Long evenings of fun

Followed by mid summer nights

Moon  reflects  the sun.

Song Lyric Sunday : Summer

The very  talented  Helen at  This  Thing called  Life One Word  at a Time  told us  that : The theme for Song Lyric Sunday on June 19th is “Summer“.  Pick a song that makes you think of summer, that has the word in the title or lyrics, or pick one of your own that has nothing to do with the theme.  We’re all open to sharing and listening to new, amazing music.  Most of all, just enjoy the process.

Rules  and  pingback here 

And  here

So which ¬†song is ¬†most ¬†evocative ¬†of ¬†summer ¬†in my ¬†mind ? Well ¬†there ¬†are ¬†many ¬†in fact ¬†too numerous ¬†to ¬†mention. So I ¬†closed ¬†my eyes ¬†and ¬†let ¬†my ¬†mind ¬†slip off to ¬†wherever ¬†as ¬†I thought ¬†of ¬†summer. The ¬†first ¬†song ¬†that ¬†entered ¬†my ¬†head was ¬†Summer ¬†Breeze ¬†, and it was not ¬†the Isley ¬†Brother’s ¬† version ¬†but ¬†the ¬†beautiful ¬†Seals ¬†and Croft version I ¬†was hearing. The ¬†song ¬†takes ¬†me back ¬†to 1972 ¬†the ¬†year ¬†after ¬†I ¬†got ¬†married. Happy ¬†carefree days.

So  here  we are  please  enjoy!

SUMMER BREEZE

See the curtains hangin’ in the window
In the evenin’ on a Friday night
Little light is shinin’ through the window
Lets me know everything’s alright

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

See the paper layin’ on the sidewalk
A little music from the house next door
So I walked on up to the doorstep
Through the screen and across the floor

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

Sweet days of summer, the jasmine’s in bloom
July is dressed up and playing her tune
And I come home from a hard day’s work
And you’re waiting there, not a care in the world

See the smile awaitin’ in the kitchen
Food cookin’ in the plates for two
Feel the arms that reach out to hold me
In the evening when the day is through

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

The evening

The golden shafts of light cascade through the branches and leaves of the tress opposite

The shadows creeping silently across the lawn usher out the day in preparation for the night.

It is still warm, OH! that’s such a treat .To sit here in the garden wrapped in the evening’s glory

Celebrating  a glorious day , a once in a life time, stunningly sunny perfect story.

 

I was sure I could see fairies dancing, tiny wee beauties leaping and prancing.

Okay it was, maybe a trick of the light , as it flowed through the garden setting me off romancing!

Sipping  a glass of ruby red , drinking in the scene sipping at the wine

It was all so glorious, a precious moment it could be nothing less than divine!

Finally the in the last rays glow , the silent birds  now knew it was time for day to go

Leaving us here all hushed and quiet , basking in pure delight as we lay below.

Colours now all monochrome, gone the golds and greens of day slipped away into black and grey.

Sipping gently on  this succulent  wine, regarding  nights approach, pushing away all remnants of the day.

 

A collective sigh at nature’s glory, we raise our glasses ¬†to her ¬†story.

The flowers bend and go to sleep, the ivy silently and relentlessly creeps

Children from their bedroom windows peep.It has been a wonderful day, hey kids are you still not asleep
