… About Summer
there is this – about a summer’s day
there is this – the blues are chased away
there is this – creating time to play
there is this – the sunshine’s golden ray
there is bliss – in summer’s night
there is bliss – the stars so bright
there is bliss – just seems so right
this and bliss – summer delight!
~ Penny L Howe, 2013
Happy Summer everyone, go out and play!

Love how you came full circle at the end there, pairing “this” and bliss” Loved the separation and stinginess with words throughout–formulaic, which as the daughter of a mathematician (well, physicist) is like buttercream frosting. I like to think of sentences as equations!!
And the picture!!!
I hear you. My mom was spiritual of nature, my dad had a scientific approach to life, I ended up in the middle of things Karen! 🙂
Delightful poem Penny. Let the summer fun begin! 🙂
you captured summer beautifully
Thank you, very much! 🙂
Summer is so beautiful, delightful, fun… through your pens!

Wonderful and different poem, love it. Happy summer to you Penny. Ours started with rain again……it is what it says everywhere… British summer…wet and windy… 🙂
Still I am grateful for each day we have ! With love Ute
Yes, I grew up in a very rainy state (Oregon) so I’m most familiar with those feelings. As you say it is good to be grateful for each day we have … well spoken dear friend, much love to you, 🙂 xx
It’s winter here.. so do one for use now…
I hope you still have a pleasant weekend Bulldog! xx
Cheerful poem:) as is the photo
It was fun padmini, I love to play with words! 🙂
Clever poem and form… like how you put that all together! Wonderfully written my friend xxx
Thank you Roxi, I’m on a mission (for myself), that every now and then I want to explore nuances, cadence, rhythmic flow, placing of words that rhyme (or don’t) see how far I can extend my creativity. I know you know what I mean there, dear poetress master! xo
Keep exploring because I’ve seen some amazing stuff come from your pen. I’ve learned much from you dear Penny… don’t berate yourself or your writing! I am a simple poet and I’m content with that 😉 xxx huggs
uh huh! simple poet! Well you have me smiling. Let us both say that you and I are ‘within ourselves’ a continuing work in progress, I feel very good about that one! 🙂 xo
Can’t help but SMILE BIG on this one 😀
SUMMER really shakes off the winter blues. And – this year – it almost didn’t want to leave.
A most cheerful summer post for the 1st day of a great season!

Yes – the whole ambiance of summer makes us want to play – doesn’t it!? This is delightful and wonderful Penny ~ Much Love and wishes for a wonderful 1st weekend of summer ~ x Love, Robyn
Yes, it is most important to remember to play, too easy to forget in the “adult role” I think! Warm sunny days do make for more pleasant outings, for sure! all my love and very happy and Summer and weekend Robyn! xo
