Weather

Cold and wet weather.
What has happened to summer?
Still early August!

Burning Bright

Summer solstice,
burning bright.
How the sun rejoices.

Goodbye

Goodbye to summer days,
welcome treetops autumn blaze,
chilly mornings, misty haze;
the turning year’s new phase.

Over

Summer’s over,
evenings cooler,
darkness earlier,
soon be Winter!

Bees

September.
Bright sunshine,
warm as summer.
Bees gather late pollen.
Harvest.

Up and Down

Up and down weather,
one day hot the next day not.
An English summer.

Subtle Changes

Some subtle changes.
Green leaves slowly darken hue,
summer shifts onwards.

Tennis

It’s that time again,
tennis, strawberries and cream.
Wimbledon summer.

Shadows

Shadows stretch,
sun retreats,
days shorten,
summer fades.

Burnished Gold

Two trees
still cloaked in summer green
are bronzed like burnished gold
by rays of evening sun.
