Monday Poetry Prompt: Summer

Yesterday was the June solstice, the beginning of summer for poets in the northern hemisphere, so this week let’s write a summer poem. Post your sultry sonnets and torrid triolets in the comments below.

(If you’re in the southern hemisphere, feel free to compose a cold couplet or two.)

    Some sagely writer once said
    “July reveals the lie of Spring”
    (or something to that effect)

    Just sometimes
    June can pull it off

  2. Summer calls me out
    inward I draw from the heat
    coolness is my friend
    Once I dip into the pool
    I will come to life again

  3. Whoops .. here is a cold one …

    “I opened the prompt link
    While daytime flew by
    I blinked and in a wink
    Blue sky suddenly died
    To a dull shade of zinc
    And my icy quill shook awry
