Nonstop Rain

It keeps raining here
dismal and unrelenting
tiresome and taxing.

I should be grateful.
Nonstop drought could be much worse.
I miss the sun though.

I suspect I might
complain about too much heat
if no rain showed up.

I think the weather has been crazy all over the country this year. We had the wettest June ever, and we still get torrential downpours after a day of heat and humidity. The flowers are thriving -- but so are the weeds.

I love Seattle rain, more like a mist. Keeps air so fresh. I'd die in heat.

Muff, it's still raining!

Diane, I'm glad you like the rain.

Definitely truth in your poem, Judy! Hope you're having a good summer, rain or shine.
