Summertime itch

My feet are office carpet itchy,
my eyes are screen stare scritchy –
I think I’ve got an allergy to inside space:
I need to feel the sunshine on my face –
summer lightning fizzing on my skin
I’m just waiting for the weekend to begin.

And – dVerse is back! Seven years of prompts, sharing and poetic community. Today’s prompt is, appropriately, itch. Grace is hosting tonight, and I’m itching to get over there.

  1. I can relate to the itch to go outside and feel the sunshine on my face ~ Let the weekend begin again, smiles ~ Thanks for joining us Sarah ~ Happy annviersary ~


  2. Ha! I too often used to feel the need to go outside and feel the sun. Thank goodness I retired 3 years ago! I love the word scratch. I give my MIL’s dog “scritchey scrotches” be hind his ears.


  3. I like ‘screen stare scritchy’. Mine is just calming down now I’ve finished marking – and I managed to get out in the garden two afternoons in a row and sat in my purple chair to read with the cats nearby – heaven with some ‘summer lightning fizzing on my skin’!


  4. You lured me in with the first line and it just got better from there! I like the theme and contrasts you made. That indoor space can definitely be itchy and annoying after awhile.
