Rain Asks for Nothing
Gary Busha


Rain asks for nothing
yet gives itself away for free
so generously

Gary Busha is a Wisconsin native who likes that state’s changing seasons. His poetry — lean and plain-spoken, with themes of nature and lament — is strongly influenced by his good fortune in having grown up on Lake Winnebago. A poetry chapbook publisher for many years, Gary has recently published 24 mini haiku/short poem chapbooks. For information, email him at

Rain is free. Water costs money. Poems are on loan.
