Enjoy Natures Thrill

The feeling of grass beneath my feet,
the smell of fresh roses in the air;
The need to quench my thirst,
and shield my eyes from the suns’ bright glare.

The craving I have for an ice-cream,
and all of my prayers for the rain;
There’s no question about it,
-Summer is here once again!

No wind to cool your skin,
life depends on the swimming pool;
If I lived beside the coast,
perhaps at night I’d be more cool.

The stars above me laugh,
they know I’m not at peace;
In Summer they watch as I melt;
and in Winter I’m wrapped up in fleece.

There’s no winning with this weather;
I long for the Autumn and Spring;
I hate the coldness of Winter;
and the discomfort that Summer can bring.

But I love the Summer’s night sky;
and the distant storms that crawl;
I love the smells after the rain;
And looking up from beneath trees that are tall.

My mind’s in such a muddle;
perhaps that’s why I can’t be still;
I guess I should learn to adapt;
and just enjoy, natures’ thrill.

    Thanx for your kind comment Anne-Lise. Here in South Africa, we're in the heart of summer! -We're thankful for any rain and wind we get. -If you like I could email you some pics of what summer is like over here, and perhaps you could send me some pics of your winter? I'm sure it must be beautiful:) xoxoFaaiqah:)
