Wet Monday

Wet Monday

I was going for a walk, but no point bothering
Looked outside and it’s heavily plothering
No point in going back to my now cold bed
So I’ll have a nice hot cup of gold blend instead

The forecast says light rain and a gentle breeze
With a temperature reaching up to maybe 18 degrees
Well so be it, there is no point in complaining
Just got to make the most, when it’s flippin’ raining.

So while the garden gets a soaking from nature’s watering can
I’ll sit and drink my coffee and rethink my Monday plan.

About the author

I love to write the odd poem when inspired by some event or happening in my own life or that of my family and friends. I usually just write poems for my own pleasure, but I have enjoyed sharing a few of my efforts on Silversurfers and have received some wonderful comments from the community. I enjoy watching Rugby Union. I call myself a 'Hobby Colourist' and enjoy the work of the inky black and white artist Johanna Basford, and I also dabble in photography, in a very amature pastime kind of way.

Thanks very much Yodama. I’m not a tea drinker, except for the odd cup of camomile and honey. I take after my Mum, bless her, as she never liked tea either. I’m way behind in reading and viewing showcase items. I love talking about the weather. Never a dull moment on that subject. Talking of which, it’s pretty dull, and grey, outside right now.

What a soggy day! Bit of a weather roller coaster at the moment! Hope your Monday was pleasant despite the rain - get ready for the heatwave at the end of the week! 🙂

Bet you that I’ll be complaining about the heat when it comes. Haha. Never a happy medium.
