Marty's Haiku - 6. Arrival

Perhaps a glimpse of how where I live might appear on rainy days.

Fortunately, it doesn't actually rain every day.

Grey mountain ranges
Dark lakes, potholed roads, and rain...
Welcoming me home.

Rain is not always a bad thing. Sometimes, it's exactly what I need. Nicely done, Marty. Cheers! G.

Sounds quite similar to where I live, without the mountains.  And sub snow for rain :)

Cheers, Gary! :thumbup:

Although, I often think we get just a little bit more than our fair share of rain in this part of Ireland... :yes:

If I could, I'd gladly send some of it your way. Although @Albert1434 might be more in need of it... :unsure2:

Thanks for the comment, Val. :)

Although, I think that what you are really saying is that it sound only very slightly similar to where you live... ;)

You're more than welcome to keep the snow, Albert!

Because we normally get so very little of it here in the northwest of Ireland, when it does come we are just not prepared for it.

But Marty your not living at 5000 feet/1524 Meters like I am:yes:

True. :yes:

I'm only 32 metres  (105 feet) above sea level. And the highest mountain in Ireland, Carrantuohill, is only 1,038 metres (3,406 feet) above sea level. 

So you're basically looking down on me, Albert! :rofl:
