Drizzle

Drizzle

Drizzle soothes and smoothes
Stalling Sunday gardening
After the frantic retrieval of items from the washing line

 

Greyness suffuses the afternoon
Sinking into the pores of the day
Quietening us all to a more formal Sunday observance

Rain

Rain

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…..
