Haiku Friday Volume 14 - Windy Weather


Windy morning has
sucked the moisture from my skin ...
Everything doth itch!

Soon the headache will
settle in as sinuses
react to this change

in the weather here
at the beach where usually
dampness doth exist.

I don't know how long
winds will last this time. I'd so
much more like some rain!

Watering the yard
isn't easy when the winds
blow. I wish I had

let someone install
sprinklers after all. Alas ...
hindsight is most clear!

For a Mr. Linky to other Haiku Fridays
go to A Mommy Story.

Haiku Friday Volume 13 is here.

I'm feeling all itchy and achey just reading this...you have my sympathies!

storyteller said...

Karen – Thanks … I’m sure I’ll survive the itches. The headache will be another story. I should have realized the weather was shifting last night when I started to feel dizzy and strange. If I paid attention to weather reports I might not be taken by surprise so often. Hope you’re having a delightful day.
Hugs and blessings,

Brilliantly done. As usual.

Rain, rain, come to stay
North Carolina is dry
enough already, thanks.

:-)

Yolanda said...

Thanks for sharing these. Hope you feel better soon.

storyteller said...

Jennifer – Thanks so much. This has been a year of such unusual weather all over the nation! I hope YOU get rain soon and those who have had enough rain and snow already get some relief as well.

Yolanda – When the weather shifts and the prevailing breezes return, my head and skin will calm down. In the scheme of things, it’s truly “small” stuph!

I wish you both a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and blessings,

Sugar scrub. Then LOTS of lotions! Or even massage oil works on super dry skin. I know what you mean about the sinuses.

storyteller said...

Marylin – Thanks, but the symptoms will last until the wind shifts. Hopefully that will be soon.

Janet – Me too … but I’m hanging in with aspirin and some Aveda body lotion at the moment. I even managed to get the yard watered while Molly played with a neighbor’s lab and greeted everyone who passed by.

AFF – I’ve never heard of a “sugar scrub” but I’ll definitely check it out. Thanks for the suggestion.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend too. Happy Haiku Friday!
Hugs and blessings,

oh the sinuses... that was me earlier this week - a lavender blanket heated up helped me sooo much.

Dawn – Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll give it a try!
