NPM 2019 Day 23: Inspired by the Dictionary

I am a word collector. I like to read the dictionary and thesaurus for fun. Sometimes I'm inspired by words I read and write a poem based on them. Here's one of those poems.

miz·zle - very fine, misty rain n.
   [from the Middle English mysell and Middle Dutch misel]

The skies are heavy
with woolen clouds
of gray that
do not dump or pelt
but fairly spritz
the earth
in a nebulous
fog of delicious

Happy Tuesday all. See you tomorrow for another original poem.

  1. Since yesterday was the first day we had that cracked the mid-80's, the rain poem is beautifully evocative ...we complained about the endless rain, but now that it's hot, a bit 'o' mizzle sounds lovely, of course.
