Never has the summer been
As hot as it is now,
If you go out it’ll hurt your skin
It might even scorch your brow.
Heat index at 50 degrees
That’s Celsius and not Fahrenheit,
But still wouldn’t you agree
That, that is hot alright!
Can’t get to the beach to cool off
Or to the mall for some cold air,
If only we could get out, just blastoff
And feel the wind in our hair.
I fix instead some cold drink
One glass, then two, then three
This will do for now, I think
Until again the heat makes me thirsty.
Hues of orange splash the sky
Splattered like magnificent painting greeting the early commuters off to work
I sigh a little as I saw only a glimpse of it
I wanted to pause the moment before the busy day and just bask in awe under it
The sun showing its glow but not quite the full show
I take a photo of it in my mind and I smile inwardly thinking how beautiful the day will be
I feel at ease and calm
The sea, it helps me be calm.
Time is slower there and all worries are washed away
Sitting on the beach soaking the salty air makes it the best day!
My toes dig deep on the sand
This place couldn’t be more grand.
I take a dip and swim all the stress away
This is quite a nice getaway.
I look up and I see up ahead
The sun is burning brightly orange and red
A hint of purple and blue
Yes, I see those colors too.
Beyond the horizon, the sun is leaving
But its beauty still radiating
Cooler breeze is now blowing
As the sun is slowly setting.
I marvel at the stars,
In awe always of the moon,
Enjoy each sunrise,
In love with the mysteries of the ocean,
They call me hopeless romantic.
She dreamed wide awake
Dipped her toes on the warm sun
And let her hair dance on the night breeze
I longed for longer days
One that I do nothing but watch the sunrise and set
Sip coffee from my favourite mug
And let the world go on while I watch and do nothing
Oh life can be tough
And life can be sweet
At times bitter and sad
And then some breakthrough!
A bit of sun under the rain
A rainbow at the end of the dark clouds
It’s never easy
Was never meant to be
But cheers to you doing it all!
The day the sun went down,
It never came back up again.
The world was dark say for the stars and the silent moon
But their light was faint.
“Goodbye”, said the sun
And it set forever, never to return.
I see the sky so clear
The sun shining bright and hot
I feel that here is where I belong
