I believe that Mother Nature would not forsake such a request.
I love your descriptive lines, this is a poem that moves me.
I really have been away much too much from the den, I must not do that again.
Much peace, love and light, and rainfall...

|"There is a sigh of breeze
A silence of the unknown
With whiff of distant drizzle perhaps"
I so like this, it is absolutely lovely and well-written
as all yours are Regis... I like the picture too :)
I can always detect rain by its lovely scent before it
arrives, just like I can detect the smell of autumn
It has been much too long"
This alone says so much
Love and Light

This was so beautifully written, and is so refreshing. Hope you get the rain soon.
|Reviewed by Paddy Bostock
|"Palpable" is the key word here because it connects the synaesthetic elements of the poem to the picture that introduces it. As usual, Regis, a happy concatenation.|
|Reviewed by RWE SAYS BYE
|"the moon seems somehow shy to me" is a great example of what brings your poetry so resoundingly to life, Regis... this personification adds an air of indifference, a tepidity that blends with the imagery in the rest of this poem to suggest there is somehow a pathetic fallacy at work in the drought... an air of insidious intent...
We ourselves have just come through nearly two months without rain, but are now living through a sort of days of deluge... I won't go so far as to say, a monsoon is upon us, but the lawns and the forests are greening up nicely again... a balm, a refreshing calm is moist upon the land, and the long wait for Rain ... is over, Thank God!
|Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo
|Beautiful poem. Refreshing. Makes me crave for some rain right now and taste its goodness on my skin... Thanks for sharing.|

|So beautifully stated, Reg. I felt your anticipation and caught the whiff of rain (so refreshing). We too in No. Texas have experienced the summer droughts, but are now blessed with an occasional soaker-rain; what relief.
Blessings and Love to you - Micke
