What a Day

What a day —
non-stop drizzle, dank and grey.
How am I
supposed to get the washing dry?

Dismal

What can I say?
Rain and drizzle,
drizzle and rain.
Dismal day.

Melancholy

No sun.
Melancholy drizzle seeps
from grey shroud overhead.
The day sighs.

Loss

Gentle drizzle falls.
Cloud covered leaden sky mourns
the loss of summer.

Mizzle and Drizzle

Mizzle and drizzle,
not one thing nor t’other,
coat on to go to the shop.
But the rain it got lighter,
the day became brighter
and the coat became damnably hot!

Watering

The sun withdraws her favours
once again. A dismal day
and rain drizzles steadily down
on the parched ground, gently
dampening, soaking in,
life-giving, nurturing,
far more effective than I am
with my feeble watering-can.

Morning Mist

Early morning mist,
depressing damp drizzle, changing
the face of Autumn.

Drizzle

Clouds obscure the sun,
like tears the drizzle tumbles
down the face of day.

Red Splashes

Bold red splashes of Azalea blossom
push through the Cotoneaster hedge
making a statement among
the drizzle of late ruby berries.
