A RECOLLECTION SUMMER PAST – ‘Simple Pleasures’. Poetry .

Simple Pleasures

~

a recollection of summer past

Rainbow of umbrellas ripple in the breeze

Rainbow of people on the beach and in the water

On their boats and water crafts

Tossing balls and bouncing on their floaters

Swimming, sun bathing and building sand castles

Reading and people-watching.

The soft wind sketches hatched patterns

Across the surface of the water

Sea gulls dip and swoop

Endless simple pleasures.

 I wrote this poem one perfect summer day this past August. I found it scribbled on a worksheet in my journal.
It is difficult to comprehend, on this wet, chilly September day, that this glorious experience was only one month ago.
