Raining Pain

The hard rain has been falling again and flooding the man made drains…

Raining Pain

Can you hear the rain? 

I can’t see above the clouds 

Can you feel her pain? 

Ivor Steven (c) Sept 2021

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. Wowza! That photo, the song/vid, and your haiku are a perfect trio!
    A smile after pain to me is like a rainbow after the rain. 🌈 🌈 🌈 Keep smiling, Ivor!

  2. We have had a very wet summer here. I love rain and the summer rainy season in Florida, but even I am looking forward to October when the weather will be drier. My sinuses are tired of the mold in the air.

    My complaints are trivial compared to the disastrous floods in many areas. Yes, I believe that Mother Nature is crying angry tears!

    Wishing you and Frankie lots of more spring-like weather! ❀ ❀ ❀


    1. Thank you Cheryl .. the bad rains have been world wide … my cousins in Philadelphia were hit, but luckily they are all Ok and with minimal damage .. .. And yes we have upset the balance of nature … mankind has got to clean up its own backyard.. .. and stop pretending humans own this planet 🌏 πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—
