I Long for a Warm June Day

I long to return to a warm June day, Feeling the glow of sun on my face, Watching clouds across the sky race. I don’t know why I feel this way But I’ve always loved the summer For me, cold weather is a bummer. Seems warmth holds my arthritis at bay Less ailments, less pain, feeling good -- Of course, like a man of my age should. Of all the months, June is my mainstay Watching newborn life come to bloom No more a prisoner in a drafty room. I come alive in the beauty of after-May Feel the sun on my face at high noon, Actually, it cannot come too soon. I long to return to a warm June day I don’t know why I feel this way, Seems warmth holds my arthritis at bay Of all the months June is my mainstay, I come alive in the beauty of after-May!
Written September 28, 2022 [a Constanza, a poetry form invented by the late Connie Marcum-Wong]

Beautifully written Constanza. Here in June, we have monsoon rains and the month of June is a little dull for me. Like you, I too love summer season the most... of course not the extreme kind when temperature rises to unbearable levels. I too feel healthier in summer and I too am arthritic. So on a sunny day I have lesser aches.

I think she would. She was such a warm, lovely lady. I do miss her.

We have a crying need for a resort to be aptly named, 'Arthritis Bay.' Hey, hey

I think it would be packed, most of the time, gw.

That is my favorite month also Milton. My birthday is June 2nd and my fathers is the 8th and so is my wife's. I love the warm temperature and the breezes and wildlife and flowers seem to thrive in this month. Thanks for shaing...

Oh, I'm so glad, Michael. I love the spring every bit as much and more than I hate the winter! For all of the things you mentioned.

A wonderful and warm write! I enjoy the fresh cool air of Autumn the best, though I embrace the warmth of Summer. Right knee the culprit for me and my left is trying to act up too. Wearing knee sleeve when exercising.

I have the most problem at night. My lower back and left knee. It's aggravating. I've never tried a sleeve. When I try to walk the track, my hips give out.
