Title:  Wishing For Rain

Author:  Jim Greenwald

Publisher:  Publish America

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder

Poetry That is Pure as Emotional Rain

“Wishing For Rain” is one of those well thought out books of emotionally flowing prose; the kind of poetry that speaks of lost loves and loneliness. The poet uses the rain as a spiritual bridge from his heart to the universe. Jim Greenwald’s wonderfully crafted little poetry book (59 pages) comes across as soft and sensitive and at times inspirational without losing any male energy. It is a book that men will be able to relate to.

Even though the words from most of his poems deal with lost loves and being alone, the under current is all about hope. The poems takes his readers on a journey of feelings and dreams and desires. He uses simple naked phrasing, which paints the inner image of what he is feeling without over writing each individual piece of poetry. It is a straight forward approach to his poetry that is honest. He dives into his heart quickly and pulls out pearls of feeling with each poem. It is poetry that easy to read and to understand.

My favorite poem was the title poem “Wishing For Rain”, where the poet asks:

If I screamed I love you…would it rain again!

Would I hear your words

Or feel only your tears as

They fell from the sky mixing with mine.

Truly one of the better poetry books written over the past couple of years; a good book to buy as a gift to someone you care about.
