Another ‘ode’ to the lovely Dutch weather today. I’m not much of a sunbather and I don’t despise windy or rainy days by definition, but I do enjoy to see and feel that big ol’ star’s glowing light and rays now and again, rather than the cover of dull grey clouds, depressing showers and gusts of wind pounding against my window. My plants tend to agree with me, especially one that’s been losing its leaves lately because of the lack of sun. I hope it’ll get through… Unfortunately, it’s late Autumn and during the past few weeks the season has been determined to present its uglier side. A haiku seems in order.
Lashing rain and wind
Pour forth from the dark grey sky
With no end in sight
