My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

The White Rain


It’s been another dry summer, here in BC. Hopefully some rain on the way this week.

The threat of forest fires still looms, as we reach the middle of August.

Hope you enjoy this “rainy” poem from the archives. And hope your weather has been good, wherever you are.

Wishing You a Happy Week!

My Poetic Path

Enveloping, encompassing….

it begins.

Touching more than skin and sight.

Seeping into the mind and soul.

The white rain.


More than reality, dreams,

or mere thoughts.

Beyond reason.

It takes over the moment.

Changes and shifts, the perception of the day.

Five senses,

now fully engaged.


Warm spring shower.

Icy needles of sleet, mixed with snow.


Gentle or forbidding.

The power to destruct.

More often to sustain.


The white rain.

It is, a state of mind.

Or lull in the storm.


a subtle part of nature’s fantasy.
