Similar feeling here!
Some rain just lifts your mood doesn't it? ;-)I had a neighbour dump a bag of our laundry from the garden saying we were using up space on the clothesline. Firstly, there are three large rotating clotheslines, secondly, no one else is going to put out shirts and sheets when it's raining except for two mad haiku poets.Thank goodness for haiku rainy weather is all I can say.Thanks Dennis! ;-)Alan
Hi Alan! "Mizzle"? I can feel a misty drizzle. Is it a common word in the U.K.? I like it!
I think mizzle might be a poetic term although it's a good direct word for the kind of rain we had today, which was mizzle after all. ;-)Feel free to use it! ;-)Alan
Alan, what is with the "Mizzle". I am from NYC and I thought I had heard every thing. Great poem though mizzle and alllove, Melanie
