Goodbye July

July 1

Goodbye July

Tapestries of Summer floating by

Kaleidoscopes of canopies

Inky etchings at sunset

Leafy layers of shelter

Big green umbrellas

Drummed by raindrops

Tumbling waves

High hopes

  1. Those clouds look ominous..they remind me of the sea when it’s angry and seems to almost boil. But then I think it also means change is about to occur which it will, as nothing stays exactly the same. I do enjoy looking at this picture because of the patches of light and clarity of the blue sky.

    1. Hi Joni, you read the situation so well. I took the photo out on the cliffs and the sea was moody beneath but changed and now has changed again. And, as you say, everything will change now before too long.

  2. Lovely poem of yours , simple but sincere and evocative

    I write poetry but am not a real poet.

    Goodbye To July Good bye to July, welcome to August Summer promises still beckon and hold Life is hope and sunshine The heart should be free and bold.

        1. Paul, interesting how you use the phrase ‘you and yours.’ It reminds me very much of a great friend from the States who tended to use it a lot. It’s not a turn of phrase that I hear much in Ireland.

          1. It isn’t used a lot here but everyone would be familiar with it. It is most commonly used in Christmas and other formal greetings, usually written, to wish families and relations good health and prosperity. Instead of listing family, relatives, friends, colleagues,,etc, the word “yours” is used instead.
