Welcome Again Summer! - Response to Word Challenge by Brenda Arledge

Umesh is a freelance writer contributing his creative writings on varied subjects in various knowledge and educational sites in internet.

Preface

Summer is a time to rejoice and make merry in the outdoors enjoying the pleasant breeze and open sky. We wait for it through the long winter and cool spring and finally that is nature’s warmth that we attain wholeheartedly under the brilliant sunshine. Even in those places where sunshine is severe and harsh, sitting under the shade itself gives that nearness to the heat of the sun that is the source of all energy on this planet called Earth. It is said that the only reason why there is life on Earth is the continuous supply of cosmic heat energy from the Sun to one of the most favourable family members that is the mother Earth.

I like summer and sometimes back I wrote a poem I adore Summer also and now I am inspired and motivated by the word prompt offered by our fellow hubber Brenda Arledge to produce creative writing on the word ‘Summer’. This poem is the culmination of those thoughts only.

Welcome again summer!

Welcome summer, I am waiting for you,

You are the source of energy,

Creating the picturesque hue.


The end of harsh winters and cool springs,

Gives the message of summer,

Huge packets of sunshine it brings.


The warmth of Summer is like Mother’s lap,

The continuous pleasure and delight,

Like a magnificent magical sap.


Summer is the time to go outdoors,

It is a great opportunity for us,

To rejuvenate our clogged pores.


The clear sunshine, the no clouds sky,

It is all so bright and reflective,

Everywhere only the birds fly.


No chilling wind, no freezing river,

Everything is warmer now,

There is nothing to shiver.


Stay for more time, completely embrace us,

We are a part of you only,

Protect and prosper us.

Umesh

In your introduction you tell us how summer is a sense of joy.

We wait for it in the long cold winters and cool spring.

Although it is hot, it is enjoyed beneath a shade tree and is actually the reason we have life.

In your poem, "Welcome again summer!" You show us how we wait for the summertime to arrive.

Ending the harsh winter and cool days, bringing us the warmth of the sunshine.

It is comforting like sitting on Mother's lap.

It fuels us with magic as we go outside in the heat rejuvenating ourselves enjoying the clear sky.

It feels like we are a part of it.

A great piece of work.

I will post a link in the word prompt article.

This poem captures the feel good factor of summer. In our parr of the UK it has been cool and cloudy recently. I hope for a return to summer weather before autumn sets in.
