Inside the Mind of Davy D
Where Words and Worlds Collide in Poetry
June 1, 2018
Fire, Micro-Poetry, Mirror, Smoke, Summer
Poetic Beats is taking a break for a few weeks to recharge the batteries. We will be back on Friday the 15th of June 2018. Today is the first day of the meteorological Summer in the UK, let’s hope it is a good one.
Reblogged this on The Militant Negro™.

Great haiku and artwork combo, Davy!
May it be a happy and healthy Summer!
OH! 😦 I will miss Poetic Beats! 😦
But, enjoy the break! May your batteries recharge nicely!
Thank you Carolyn and glad you enjoyed it. A happy Summer to you too. We have been doing it for nearly a year now and just a few weeks to review and plan for the next year. Have a good weekend 🙂
Here is a battery joke…and if it is inappropriate you can delete it!
An well-seasoned couple was sitting in church on Sunday, listening to a sermon, when the wife whispers to her husband, “I just let out a silent fart. What should I do?” Her husband says, loudly, “Well, for starters, you should put a new battery in your hearing aid.”

LOL Carolyn, that nearly made me want to go back into a church 🙂
Oooh, I’m going with typical UK summer, cloudy – smoke, no mirrors – no brightness, don’t know why, except I’m English haha!
Not much gets past you Nigel. This poem is about all the hype we get in UK newspapers prior to the arrival of summer, especially the Daily Fail and Express. We are always told it will be the hottest summer on record then we enter September with frostbite. We invariably get a few days of haze and no tan to show off in the bedroom mirror. Have a good weekend.
I’m jealous of your English weather. My relatives should have never hopped on the Mayflower. It was close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit here today. And we’re just getting started. It will almost certainly reach 110 (43.3 Celsius) or so by the end of summer. It’s a tricky, wonderful haiku, Davy!
Laura, that is a hot start to Summer. We have had some heavy lightning and thunderstorms recently, which are unusual for this time of the year. There is something going on with the weather. Glad you enjoyed the poem 🙂
Ahhh, yet for me to ponder again? Half-hearted? Not even trying to fool us with the mirrors! Just smoke??? Have a great time off Poetic Beats!!
Thanks Chuck, just a break to review and plan a few things. Glad you enjoyed the poetry and have a good weekend.
Poor Summer, it tried so hard but the English weather put out the fire. The clouds started crying.
Very clever Davy and tricky.
Nice one Miriam and I enjoyed your reprise, although I hope it is a vision of summers past. Thank you for taking time out to read and comment and hope the sun shines for you this weekend 🙂
Ohhhh I liked this one. Short and to the point. Your meaning and mine are probably very different. Because boy would I have loved to have said this to my first husband when I handed him divorce papers. Hehehe 😉
I enjoyed this, Davy. I can apply this to many situations, indeed. Enjoy your break from Poetic Beats.
Thank you Eugenia and have a good weekend 🙂
I’ll take the UK summers over the usual 90+ temps we get. Enjoy the break.
Thanks Colleen, although we will have one extreme or another here in the UK 🙂
have a lovely summer Davy!
Thank you Gina. Is it moving into Summer over where you are?
its always summer here LOL! But we have been having a very early monsoon season, peculiarly so. so lots of unexpected rain and thunderstorms with blazing hot days in between.
Geography wasn’t one of my strong points at school Gina LOL 🙂
Honestly Davy it’s often very hard to accept that we don’t have distinct seasons on the equator, when we read about other countries that do. visitors from the northern hemisphere who live here longer also can never get over the fact that summer is never over! some in a good way others not so! Our weather conversations are pretty boring, it’s either rain or no rain!
That’s interesting Gina. Sometimes we can have four seasons in one week which makes it lively at times. I think experiencing the change of the seasons breaks up the year 🙂
I have experienced being prepared for the weather to suddenly change when I travel and it can be overwhelming for someone who comes from a tropical country. Indeed the different seasons are a great way to mark the passing of a year.
Smoke without the mirrors…what a great line. Summer expectations can far exceed our actual experience, can’t they? Thank you for this Davy, this thoughtful haiku brings me home. 🙂
I am pleased it did that for you Gwen and thank you for the kind words and feedback. I am hoping this summer lives up to some of its hype here in the UK. Have a good week 🙂
