Today's prompt is to write an occasion poem.
Bring out the bunting, barbecues, beach trips.
Deckchairs, sun loungers, parasols, bikinis.
Welcome back flowers, foliage and freckles.
Hello sun, fun and ice-cream sundaes,
pineapples, strawberries, passionfruit daiquiris.
The greening of gardens, the tanning of limbs.
Daisy-decked lawns and rose scented sentiments.
A thousand shades of yellow: buttercup, dandelion,
laburnum and camomile, honey haze of morning light.
The stage-show of sunsets: cerise, peach, flamingo pink.
Stars like fireflies in blue midnight skies.
Swallows, swifts and kaleidoscope butterflies.
Happiness like a bumblebee humming in nectar.
