    For the Northern hemisphere, summertime officially begins on June 21st. In honour of this upcoming date, let's make some poetry! The environment is already nice and warm for some places. Even over here in Washington, we've had a few days of warmth and sunshine. Here are some ideas if you have trouble getting started:

    • Flowers
    • Swimming
    • Traveling/Vacation
    • Sunshine
    • Sports
    • Food
    • Why you hate the hot temperature so much
    • Summer love

    I hope I was able to inspire you with my lovely list. XD I'll post up a poem of my own if I can get a member or two to join in. I encourage you to make the poem(s) look pretty with bbcodes. If you need some guidance as to what style your poem should be, take a look at Shadow Poetry.
     
  2. Love me twice in the Summer.
    Leave me once, forever.
    I gave you a flower,
    A token of my Love.
    A sunshine of my life;
    and a Radiant of my smile.

    A heart made of diamonds,
    your gaze is amazing.
    Your heart solid as gold,
    afraid of what might happen.
     
  3. Essence of Summer

    What is the essence of summer,
    crystal blue waves
    crashing in salty foam
    on white or golden beaches?
    Is it the wild and exotic blooms
    the color heated landscapes
    of freshly cut green
    and throw sweet scents about
    in the cool gulf breezes?
    Is it the chirping of crickets
    crying for rain or the cry of
    cicadas longing to mate
    on a warm starry night?
    Is it festivals and parties
    and dark night skies lit
    with the many colors
    and patterns of fire works?
    The essence of summer is
    all of these things and more.
    The essence of summer is you.
