prose for thought

The spoilt brat

beach selfieThe spoilt brat longs for winter sun,
She recalls walks on the beach and
The taste of pasta, tossed with garlic & prawns.

The spoilt brat wants to dabble her toes
In warm sea water, watching
Dogs playing joyfully on the sand.

The spoilt brat misses basking
In the warmth on the terrace or
Shopping in big malls with fun stores.

The spoilt brat knows that in feeling
Disappointed she risks being outed as
Spoilt, but boy did that winter sun feel good.


Pretty disappointed in my writing but trying to flex my creative muscles again, hopefully they’ll warm up in time for a better poem next week!

    With the rain we’re having at the moment I can relate to this. It’s hard to let summer go I think!

    Now’t spoilt about that hun but I loved this poem. I felt a bit like that when I came back form my Summer holiday to torrential rain. Loved reading this 🙂 #prose4t

    Spoilt brat here too. Already missing the warmth of the sun and the bright mornings and light evenings and they’ve only been gone a week!
    Great imagery – brings back memories of warmer times. x
