Poetry for a rainy day

As a quick reminder, the mythical creatures issue of Honeyguide Literary Magazine is available for purchase today! 

In other news, The Rail has published a poem of mine called “The Drama of Raindrops.”  I have my older son to thank for this one.  He was telling me about a school assignment to write a weather poem, and he suggested I write one too.  I jumped at the chance.  We each independently chose rain—not surprising, given where we live.  I remembered staring at raindrops in my youth as my mom would drive me around to and from school or running errands.  Nowadays, I don’t take enough time to study and enjoy them like I used to.  It’s sad when adult concerns crowd out those types of simple pleasures.  I still adore the sound of rain while I’m inside, warm and dry.
