  1. That looks just like here, today. I just put the heat on!

  2. We must be neighbors! Wet, cold, wetter and colder here. Green, though, with lichen and mold. A beautiful image, however, and lovely warm words.

  3. Nice words, to go with a lovely photo, Geraldine.
    The rain has produced such beautiful vegetation, and gorgeous greens.
    Isn’t it odd how cool it has been, as my understanding is that the summer is forecast to be hot and dry. I prefer cooler, to hot and dry, though sunshine would be lovely.
    I really like your poem, and do hope you will get some sunshine soon.

  4. Hi SandyL, We are looking at scenes like this, misty views…day after day. I’m still wearing a sweater today sigh…

    Hi Sue, Thanks Sue. And thanks so much for being the first reviewer of My Poetic Path over at Amazon. 🙂

    Hi Brenda, Yes, some sun would be nice but this weather makes me feel like staying indoors and getting work done. And I’ve got a LOT of projects on the go, that I want to complete this summer. So a bit of a silver lining there.

    Happy Thursday, G 🙂

  5. lovely….i hope the sun comes out and finds you ready..smiles….been a scorcher here today but we have had our share of rain the last couple weeks…

  6. Wow! What a gorgeous view you have, Geraldine. I’m completely jealous 🙂

    Hope the skies cleared for you!

  7. I like this a lot. Wonderful haiku. The photo taken on a rainy day conveys the feeling of being out there, in the rain.

  8. and we know it will come!!

  9. It was a day without sun here in Pune.. your haiku has been so very timely..but then rains are needed too…thanks..

  10. The sun will come out. Nice one.

  11. Hi Brian, The sun came out this morning, what a wonderful sight! I hope the weather gets better, for all of us. It’s been a weird summer hasn’t it?

    Hi Talon, Yes, this is a pretty place, by the lake and even in the rain. You have some pretty amazing views at your blog too. 😉

    Hi Joe, Yes, it is a darker photo isn’t it? The rain was coming down steadily that day as I remember. made everything so green and lush.

    Hi Sandra, And the sun always shines doesn’t it? 🙂

    Hi Ramesh, Thanks Ramesh. I like the name of the place you live.

    Hi Tony, Thanks Tony. Indeed it will. Always returns, thank goodness, in every sense of “sunshine” too.

    Happy Week, G

  12. Hi Geraldine 🙂 ~~ I like this one! It reminds me of an old Les Paul song:
    “The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise

    Dear one the world is waiting for the sunrise
    Ev’ry rose is covered with dew
    And while the world is waiting for the sunrise
    In my heart is calling you

    Dear one the world is waiting for the sunrise
    Every little rose bud is covered with dew
    And my heart is calling for you
    The thrush on high his sleepy mate is calling
    And my heart is calling you”

    Jim’s OSI [2nd]

    BTW, thank you for reading my ‘wanting’ poem last week.

  13. too many scenes like this around here too, or is it really a good thing so that we appreciate the sunshine even more? I liked both photo and haiku a ton…
