Today it’s Open Link Night again summer is here and drinks are cold. It’s also time for us to take a little summer break, I know many will welcome some time off to recharge, read and perhaps get some editing done.
Summer is blue in many ways. I get moody and switch between happiness and melancholy. In some parts of the world summer is sweltering heat, while up in the north it’s a time of light never ceasing.
How is it for you and what are you going to spend your time off?
Myself I plan to go offline and bring books to read. Catching up on novels and drink water from springs. Gaze at mountains and sleep in a tent.
Are you gonna read something too, novels or poetry?
Summer shower by Emily Dickinson
A drop fell on the apple tree,
Another on the roof;
A half a dozen kissed the eaves,
And made the gables laugh.
A few went out to help the brook,
That went to help the sea.
Myself conjectured, Were they pearls,
What necklaces could be!
The dust replaced in hoisted roads,
The birds jocoser sung;
The sunshine threw his hat away,
The orchards spangles hung.
The breezes brought dejected lutes,
And bathed them in the glee;
The East put out a single flag,
And signed the fete away.
When we get back on July 16 we will try to do a bit of celebration for our seven years active (remember the number seven, it can be useful for the prompts.
Later in the autumn we are considering to do some small changes. What do you want to see from the pub? Anything you want to see less or something we should do more?
Please don’t run and just link your poem, take part in the discussion and have fun.
But as usual, tonight is the night to leave any one poem for us to read. It could be about summer, it could be a prompt you have missed.
Remember to revisit and read other poem. Leave a comment to help us all to get better…
