Leaky Clouds

And now, a haiku about the rain.

It is raining out
Splashes on my windowsill
Liking my raincoat

What I enjoy about haikus is that they don't really have to make sense, but follow the 5-7-5 rule.

When I went to the market last Saturday I was wearing a short-sleeved sweater and flip-flops. It was a bit chilly on my feet, but doable since I was going to be inside anyway. But even chillier was the dirty, rude look someone gave me feet as she was exiting the building and I was entering. She didn't look at me, only my feet. Unfortunate that my selection in footwear offended her. She will be relieved to know that I will not be wearing the offensive sandals this week for the forecast temperature is a high of -4C.
