    To the writer: Liked your poem 'I Know...'. Feel, however, that poem might better conclude with second last stanza, which I find both witty and truthful. Present conclusion seems to add nothing the poem might do very well without.

    I like your poems Don. It's encouraging to find a poet of your calibre on these pages.

Hard Rain

Gusts of wind blast
the drops into a spray.
The waters rise.
This might be the day

that the streets
are all washed clean
and we know (though we have never asked)
what all the prophets mean.
