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.
