Grey Skies Through Bare Branches With New Buds

Click for Haiku SkyWatch Friday at Happily Retired Gal

Haiku Friday#129 & Sky Watch #43
Drizzily days with
grey skies ... not a glimpse of blue.
We DO need the rain!

Everything is dry
as a bone and soon we'll be
rationing water.

It is a bit gray, cool and gloomy today and yesterday. I just hope it warms up on Sunday for my granddaughter's birthday party: It is outside at a park!

That comment above was me. I didn't mean to hit anonymous.

Louise said...

These are not the skies that you usually show us. They have a lot more moodiness to them, but they are still beautiful!

Water is the new oil, I think. Beautiful skies - no matter what color...:) Soon there will be leaves. I hope...

Mare said...

It is raining and grey and the temperature is going the wrong way here in NY. Yuck!

Carolyn said...

Your photographs are lovely and my thoughts were the same today as your first Haiku as we recieved record rain today. Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend.

Barb said...

Well, behind every cloud is a silver lining - or so I've heard. Hope this moisture helps your area to bloom!

Dianne said...

gray skies can be so beautiful, these are!

Looking @ The Sky on Friday said...

You welcome the rain to your dry ground and ours is over saturated. The world around us is crazy isn't it. I'm glad you're sharing this view with us.

Thanks for playing.

Very cool photos, those buds are surely helped by the rain. Great haiku to go with them.

Good shot, storyteller and I love the quote by Maya Angelou! :)

Gattina said...

It seems you have the same sky as I do ! grey ... but the branches against it look beautiful.

SandyCarlson said...

I wish I could send some of our rain your way. I hope it comes and drenches your beautiful landscape. God bless, Storyteller.

Patti said...

I like how the branches are silhouetted against the gray sky.

Enjoyed your Haiku as always.

Joyce said...

I hope those grey skies brought the desired rain with them.

The Balboa Island pictures are delightful! They remind me of the many favorite spots I have in California; I do hope we get to vacation there this year. :)
