“Writing Poems in the Rain”: A Poetry Book by Mark Bradley

About “Writing Poems in the Rain”: "Words fall from the sky like raindrops . . . " That is the first line in one of the poems in this book. Rain can be looked at in different ways, taken in different moods, and bring about different changes. While it has given life to the world since its beginning, the rain also has given life and inspiration to many writers through the ages. It can be happy or sad, beautiful yet depressing, and sometimes you can see the wide spectrum behind it, if you look close enough. Poetry, like the rain, has refreshing qualities and brings life to those who absorb it. “Writing Poems in the Rain” is a collection of poems that contain a spectrum of emotions and experiences from life, broken down while writing poems in the rain. The book contains poems written in a variety of forms, subjects and lengths, but mostly free-verse poems.

Love the title of this book. I've never tried writing poems in the rain but I have written them in the bathtub.
