British Summertime

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.

Instead,

I hide inside

From lengths of rainy grey,

Waiting for the flash of random rays,

Any hint of sunny days.

At last,

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.
