Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives – #PotLuck – #Poetry – Summer Sunshine by Christine Campbell

Welcome to the series of Posts from Your Archives, where bloggers put their trust in me. In this series, I dive into a blogger’s archives and select four posts to share here to my audience.

If you would like to know how it works here is the original post:

Author Christine Campbell has given me permission to browse her extensive archives dating back to March 2013. This week I am sharing a poem and an image that hopefully those of us enjoying wet and stormy weather can look forward to. And also a reminder to smile at the next person that you pass by….


Summer Sunshine by Christine Campbell

Summer sunshine
Peace and laughter
Is all I’m after.

If you see me
Stop and wonder
Don’t pass by
Face like thunder.

To hold you up
Is not my plot
Stop and look
At what I’ve got.

A wond’rous view
A pretty flower
Perhaps even
A meteor shower.

The point I’m making
Is not so hard
Relax and rest
Let down your guard.

Summer sunshine
A wond’rous view
Can be for you.

One of the recent reviews for A Mountain of Memories

Part history lesson, part mystery, part romance with a dose of psychology, A Mountain of Memories is captivating from the moment the reader meets Caitlin. Through a series of twists and turns in present time, to flashbacks of terrifying events, and a view into early 20th century rural Scotland, the author tells a story that begs to be read in a single setting.

  1. Reblogged this on cicampbellblog and commented:
    What fun! I’d forgotten I’d written this wee poem five years ago, until Sally Cronin dug it out of my archives. I’ve never considered myself a poet, but I do love a wee ditty.
    Thanks, Sally, for giving this one another airing.
