BrewNSpew Cafe – July 15, 2019


August still yonder

dog days of summer torrid


July Folklore

Ne’er trust a July sky.

If ant hills are high in July, the coming winter will be hard.

Whatever July and August do not boil,
September can not fry.

Presenting this week’s prompt/challenge. You may use the word and/or the image for your creation.

Word of the week – tempest (noun) – a violent wind storm. Synonyms – squall, storm, gale, hurricane, tornado, typhoon, cloudburst, monsoon, snowstorm, blizzard, windstorm.


prompt – July 15, 2019


tempest brews yonder

life’s off-kilter musing

urges one to ponder

existence more confusing

seasons have stations

nature’s way to pause

and change destination

defines reason and cause

marmalade sunny lit days

halcyon times still and warm

basking in summer’s haze

oblivious to the looming storm

You’re at BrewNSpew Cafe, where friends meet
