(summer Poems) Some Haiku And Tankas) Sunbathing And Eating Al Fresco - Poem by Janice Windle


White cloud’s hand turning
tipping over sky blue bowl,
sun pours out on us

Barbecue ribs, browning flesh –
we taste salt and relish.


Blue sky, blue orchids,
blue leaves, blue lavender
blue deckchair, blue eyes

Blue shadows on sunny path,
all blue today but not us


“It is thyme, ” she said
“Time for what? ” he questioned
chopping herbs. “Dinner”

Barbecue – lives spiced with love
they’ve all the time in the world.

    Janice, these three poems are particularly clever with there double meanings. With Sunbathing I loved 'we taste salt and relish'. With Summertime Blues the repetition worked so well with blue,
    In Thyme the last line did it for me! These are so well crafted. Well Done! 10 Karin Anderson
