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.
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.
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
