NaPoWriMo 2014 warm-up!

I'm going to try actually using meters and rhyme a little more this time around - I decided to have a play with the iambic pentameter this afternoon to see if I could come up with something. It sounds very unlike me and very classical, certainly a bit of a surprise.....


The haze has hung around all day and night,
no rain will fall to lift this misty blight.
The sun behind its veil of thin-spread cloud
glows weak, and fails to break the shadow-shroud.
