English Weather

WEATHERSky Mirror by Anish Kapoor – the reflection caught a lovely summer sun and sky

Waking up freezing
Coughing and sneezing
Preparing to meet
Another day of wet feet.

Whipped by the wind
And beaten by rain
Hailstones enough
To cause physical pain

And that’s just Spring…

Summer, true Summer
Benevolent and caring
Paddling pools and suncream
And ice cream sharing

The warmth collects
Like molten oil
In aching bones
While others boil

Not me…

I rejoice in the baking heat
Life is good!
Life is sweet!

Hell won’t be hot enough for me.

      1. I’ve met a fellow Michelin Man! Admittedly some of my health problems probably contribute to me feeling the cold more than I should, but it’s totally miserable being so bundled up for 11 months of the year and unable to move your arms fully when you’ve got so many cardis and jumpers on! x
