Weather

Early out on the bike,
ahead of the weather.
Now drinking warm coffee
waiting for the rain.

Drought

It seems insensitive
to shout and complain
about all this rain
when other place suffer 
drought.

Forecast

Grey sky, drizzling rain.
The forecast gives more to come,
but look; daffodils!

In Between

In between rain showers
I put on my welly boots
and work in the garden.

Autumn

Between rain showers
patchy blue sky and sunshine.
So Autumn begins.

Shower

On the picnic table
a pigeon takes a shower,
lifting a wing into the rain.

Sunflowers

After the rain
the world looks freshly washed;
the trees are full of summer green,
the sky its brightest hue,
while the sunflowers turn their heads 
to greet the sun.

Poppies

The sun has gone,
the rain has come
in torrents down the road.
Flash flooding, 
man-hole covers lifted
and my bright poppies 
battered down.

More Rain

Rain
and still more rain.
Will it never end?

Between showers I rush
to do small jobs
outside.

Dug Out

In the sunshine
I dug out the ground elder -
backbreaking!
Then came the rain
and it has all sprung up again -
heartbreaking!
