Hello friends, poets.

Once more summer is here, Here in Sweden warmth is not guaranteed. Which brings me to what good weather means if you are brought up in Sweden. There is something close to a moral duty to go out and “do something”. I was brought up with the notion that it’s a moral duty not to be inside when days are long, and sun is up. So we tend to plan our life to be outside in summer. To seize the day, because tomorrow it might rain or just be cold. Besides soon autumn’s here. Sometimes it’s almost stressful of all that’s needs doing, and soon we have vacation, and every plan should be fulfilled. Actually for many the high expectations end in disappointments, depression or divorce.

Please tell me, how do you plan your summer, plans, vacations or poetry. Maybe you can share a summer poem with us. I included this reading by Mary Olivier.

But of course this is Open Link, any poem is welcome. Maybe you want to catch up on one of the prompts we’ve had since last:
