Rain and the Radio

cosmos rain again

What is it about a rainy day in autumn that resurrects sad memories in a pretty way?

Is it the dull, brooding mirror of the pavement?

Or the resolute fall flowers on the curb, standing up to the wind and chill?

Or maybe it’s Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith on the radio,

alive as ever,

Notes and words broken in pain but promising to be here

longer than any of us.

About Mary Rowen

My three published novels, LEAVING THE BEACH (a 2016 IPPY Award winner), LIVING BY EAR, and IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY focus on women figuring out who they are and what they want from life. Music and musicians have a way of finding their way into the stories. I live in the Boston area with my family and pets.

    Hi Mary. I thought rain was an illusion after months of dry, hot weather here in southern Spain. Then on Saturday it came down. Yay ! 😀 ❤

    Yes, I like to stay away from tourist spots as much as possible when traveling. If I ever go there, Ralph, I’ll have to consult with you about the good places to see.

    Thank you, Jackie. I don’t know but I love rain more and more as I get older. The sun’s all well and good, but those rainy days…definitely the best ones for writing.
