Delicious dampness, fresh scented grey,
Washing the stuffy warm weather away
My soul is a sponge, expanding when wet,
And sunshine’s a word I’d rather forget,
I like the newness of autumn (but its only July!)
The soggy clean clouds that fill up the sky
Change is the thing, after two weeks the same,
Filled with humid hot weather –Thank God for rain!

OK, so it’s no longer July, but this was written in July and  is exactly how I feel today at the end of a hot stuffy August…..

    1. it brought relief yesterday — but last week we were on Exmoor and heavy thunderstorms ans rain managed to give us even more humidity the next day. My walking gear is not designed for sunny humid conditions and the high moor was pretty unforgiving that day…. 😦


I'd love to hear from you...
