Poem-A Memorable Beach Party on a Beautiful Summer Day- Response to Word Prompt of Week 27

I love poetry. I am a lifestyle enthusiast and like to write articles and poems on lifestyle changes that benefit people.

Summer means fun, friends, beach and  the sea

Summer means fun, friends, beach and the sea

Word Prompt Week 27-Summer

Brenda, our dear friend and a great poet gave us the word prompt ‘Summer’ this week. The word prompt brought childhood memories to mind. During the summer vacations we always went to stay at our grandparents’ place which was near the sea. The sea and the beach were a great attraction for us because the city where we lived was land locked and there was no access to the beach. A visit to our grandparents’ place meant a compulsory visit to the beach. Summer vacations meant picnics and fun. My grandparents were very sportive and always looked forward to our visit to have fun and spend the vacation with us.

Summer will end soon enough, and childhood as well.

— George R.R. Martin

About the Poem

This poem is about one such day spent at the beach, swimming, tanning, playing and watching the sunset at the end of the day. We loved to watch the sunset. The different colors in the sky during the sunset filled us with excitement. We would laugh and shout and play like nothing else mattered. We would return home tired but exhilarated and a feeling of a well spent day. Summer vacation meant no school, no homework, lots of candy, ice cream and never-ending fun with friends.

The Poem

On a Perfect summer Day

When the sun was shining bright

And the birds were singing merrily

A beautiful day for a beach picnic

The children chorused cheerily.


So we packed a picnic basket

With delicious bites and a blanket

And a bottle of delectable wine

Adding some flowers and some cheese

We started for our picnic on the beach.

The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.

— Robert Wyland

As we swayed to the sound of the waves

We were drawn into the spell of the sea

Like nothing in the world was more import

And to the soul there was eternal joy and peace.


Building castles in the sand

with the sun on our shoulders

Watching the waves crash the shore

Swimming and tanning and walking

Like nothing else mattered anymore.

Sunsets are nature’s way of proving that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.

— Anonymous

sunset sublime

sunset sublime

As we enjoyed the sea surf

The sun slowly started to set

what a glorious sight it was

To see the sky illuminate with

Colors, red, orange, pink and blue.


There is magic in the air

When day meets night at twilight

When peace and calm pervade

We feel a connection with the divine.

Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer the goal.

— Elbert Hubbard

When the feet sink in the sand

With the cool breeze on the face

Hearing the cries of the seagulls

To feel a peace sublime.


There is nothing like the

Time spent at the beach

On a bright summer day

To take all the cares away.

This summer beach picnic

With my very favorite people

A day full of fun, a day well spent,

Watching the sun set in all its glory,

Is a summer I will never forget.


Summer-An Acrostic Poem

Summers mean great fun and frolic

Under the sky, suntan on the sand

Meet the friends and picnic on the beach

Memories plenty to be made

Enjoy each day, it will soon be over

Regret not when the summer is done
