My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Wordle #114 “June 20th, 2016” – oh yes, it’s raining again!
Fugitive from atrabilious moods,
I long for sunshine of another climate
But cannot stand the agonising wait,
The jostle of trains and airport queues,
Tourists that obstruct the views.
I hide inside
From lengths of rainy grey,
Waiting for the flash of random rays,
Any hint of sunny days.
I smell the gentle singe
Of sun upon my winter skin
And, without hesitation,
Thought or caution,
Haul a chair into the garden,
With a book in one hand,
In the other
A glass of elderberry wine,
Cerise and sweet,
License to bask in British summertime.
