Magnetic poem #3 – Longing for summer


I am just about over the coldest wettest winter in years and the seemingly constant spring showers.  I know this statement could be classed as blasphemous in some areas and I apologise for being so heartless.

But I’m longing for some real warmth, some bright sunshine, some lightness – so when I saw the collection of words for today’s poem, it almost wrote itself. The pleading tone sort of gives away my feelings a bit doesn’t it?

I’m really glad to have found this magnetic poetry Saturday challenge on the home of the elusive trope’s  Specks and Fragments blog, although I save it up for a Sunday activity.

I’m happy to share this post, Friday Magnetic musings, which is a roundup of all the brilliant poems created, so you too can see what everyone is coming up with from random magnetic words.

    Yes I think it’s the winter of your discontent – in more than the rain sense. If that makes sense. you’ve aced the poem again.

      Thanks for your understanding Louise and insightful comment. We have had small periods of sunshine but nothing longer term and it gets to you after a while doesn’t it? I’m having fun using this magnetic poem as a creative outlet. I’m off for a walk now before it rains again!

    Excellent poem. I hear you, it’s so depressing when it just keeps raining. It even rained here in sunny Sydney today.

      I’m hearing you Miriam!! It’s been another wet, wintry, windy, miserable day today. I sure hope it will clear up soon. The odd hours of sunshine have been few and far between lately.

    My son and I used to have the magnetic poetry squares on our fridge. I’d start a sentence and he’d finish it. Or I’d put up a poem and he’d change it. It was quite fun.

      Yes I can see how much fun they’d be. I must keep an eye out for them and do something similar.
