And it has moods. The angry storm, the persistantly annoyed downpour, the happy spring shower.

I love rain. Therefore, it's easy to like your poem.

The sound of it is so cleverly recreated in Do Make Say Think's "It's Gonna Rain" off the album "Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn."

I think you should check it out; they are an awesome band with few words-- mostly instrumental.

It is amazing how your minimalist play with words succeed to spell magic in brevity. I always love the Haiku for this effecacy.

I wish you well.

Hello Islander –

This is a note to tell you I’m genuinely happy to see you on the Island. I founded the Island originally as a temporary destination for those of us set adrift when Poetry Thursday sunk. But the Island has flourished… because of writers, like you, who come to enjoy the tropical breeze, and just write -- for the sheer pleasure of it! So, the beaches remain open, and all are most welcome!

Poetry Thursday is now ReadWritePoem. Check them out if you haven’t. The crew at Totally Optional Prompts is doing a fine job. Both are excellent writing destinations.

I am slowed a bit with back pain. This has hampered my time at my computer -- so, I have not been able to read many of the posts. I will catch up when I’m steadier at the helm. I am dictating this to my wife, who will kindly post it for me. Kathy is a dear!

See you on the island. I have a prompt for this Friday I think should spark some fun and interesting writing.

May your muse be kind…

…Rob
W.I.
