The Rainy Season - Poem by Max Reif

The rain's gone on two days,
I hope it goes on longer,
this welcome break from time.

The sun demands
a smile, a dance,
a day of work, or play.

The rain makes no demands,
It covers and it nurtures,

shelters seedlings
in its arms.

    'The rain makes no demands, it covers and it nurtures' - I love your perception of the rain and the way you have created such a vivid picture in so few words. A really refreshing read. (My perception of the rain is called 'Understated'.) Kind regards, Justine. (Report) Reply

    You have captured the spirit of the rainy season. Every word, every phrase, capturing a thought, a mood, a feeling. And then the beautiful unforgettable 'Sheltering seedlings in its arms'. Bravo! (Report) Reply

    I loved this Max! One of my favorite things to do is sit on my porch during a rainstorm............nothing better! Very nice poem. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    I'm not a fan of the rain unless I have a day off (which is not often lately) . Seems like people on DC highways just stop moving when they see a dropp (pomehunter has that tendancy to add extra p's to words and I do apologize) of water on their windsheilds. I liked the simplicity of your poem. It works especially well because you point out how do don't want to do much because of the rain. Take care. (Report) Reply

    I love nicely creative poems on natural events. Especially the last few lines of this one were well stated. Perhaps you could have extended it a bit more. Would have been nice to have the freshment of 'The Rainy Season' hang around longer. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
