Rain Again

Sunday morning and the cold rain is still falling from the sky. Looks like our wet winter began way back in May, however despite the freezing weather, I’m dressing-up in my winter woollies and venturing out again today…… and I graciously accept this is our fate for the next few days, as I continue participate in life, in every-way, of everyday….   Below I’ve re-posted some of my wintry  poems and Haiku’s that I’ve recently written……


Rain In May


The day is one of rain.

Washing streets of thoughts down the drain.

Cleansing the stains.

Flooding the silence again.

The day is dismal and grey.

Drowning the sun, it begun in May.

Many years full of dismay.

Pouring rain’s, here to stay



Cold Rain


Time’s, I played in rain

Today I worked in the cold

Wet and shivering

Autumn’s fat rain drops

Have lost their warmth and softness

Winter’s hard as ice


Haiku: Winter Rain


Chilling winter rains

Heavy big drops of coldness

Spread by icy winds


Haiku: Hail And Sun


Hail slaps the pavement

Bitumen puddles shimmer

Winter sun bursts through

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Good Sunday morning to you Ivor! Love the winter rain poetry, it speaks to my heart, this rainy day girl feels very cosy reading your poems this morning. Stay warm and be safe on those slippery roads dear friend. It’s hazy here, the fires are burning in Indonesia and blowing across the Malacca Straits to us, not pleasant but it gives the sun an eerie glow!

  2. Almost mid August and the summer weather has been appalling here in the North of England. We have had more cool and rainy days than we have had warm ones. This morning looks as though it will be another wet, miserable windy one!

    Hope you have a good evening Ivor, stay warm and dry. 🙂☔️🍺
