Biography of Practicing Poetess
As best she remembers, Practicing Poetess wrote her first poem at about the age of seven. (Her mother saved a copy of some early childhood poetry, written in crayon, in her baby album.) Practicing Poetess has written on-and-off since then, over the years. She takes her inspiration from a myriad of sources, including but not limited to her own thoughts and experiences, the experiences of others, and her very fertile imagination! As of this date, she has been a member of Poem Hunter for 6 months, and was selected for Member Poem of the Day on Friday 23rd June,2017, and again on Wednesday 25th October,2017.

    Practicing Poetess is a great and wonderful writer from the United Kingdom, the place of world's famous composers and singers. The first time I saw her work in PH, I started to follow her poems. The poems she writes are truly inspiring and heartwarming to the heart and soul of a reader. She is a real blessing to the world of poetry.

    Hi, this is Colette. Thanks for commenting on my poem. I do hope you get a chance to read some of my other poems and at the end it tells a brief summary of what inspired me to write the poem. I did notice if you read poems off your cell phone, it doesn't let you see the summary, but on a computer or laptop you can.
    I read a few of your poems and I am truly inspired by your work. I liked Voices and Choices and Walking and the few other ones I read. You are a great poet, keep up the good work!

    the insights of a woman, the words of a poet who reaches into the depths of her soul
    and brings out the best of stories to be told.

    11th March 2018 was my one-year anniversary on Poem Hunter (I joined the site, and created my account then.)
    It's been quite a journey!

  • Michael Walker Michael Walker (3/4/2018 3:16:00 PM)

    I think that this poet is breaking new ground all the time with her poems of romance and a vivid appreciation of nature-'Newly Fallen Rain'. Her imagery is usually original 'like diamonds in the sun'. The images alternate with everyday expressions 'I'll have to get the mop! '

    In reading the work of Practicing Poetess, it is quite evident that her practicing is paying off in spades. Employing short, crisp, fluxive lines, she presents a poetic canvass of imagery that not only brings her audience to the work, but takes them into and within the work, which is the mark of a good Poet. Her craftsmanship carries fluid structural movement, which affords her audience an eye-pleasing read. She is a polished scribe & a must read.

    Practicing Poetess (Pen Name) from United Kingdom is a very nice, multi-talented, kind hearted, courageous and internationally reputed leading poetess who writes very deep and meaningful poems about love, life, society, nature and many more. I have gone through many of her valuable poems which carry nice essence of expression and her efforts. (Part-1)

  • Kumarmani Mahakul Kumarmani Mahakul (1/10/2018 3:50:00 PM)

    She has definitely a lovable and philosophical mind which I have observed several times from her interesting poems. Her brilliance and skills of poetry are of high standard. She keenly observes everything. Practicing poetess is also a very good reviewer of poems of other poets. She writes everything deeply from her heart and inner core of mind. (Part-2)

  • Kumarmani Mahakul Kumarmani Mahakul (1/10/2018 3:50:00 PM)

    Among her poems, “ Voices and choices, ’ Until your final breath, ’ You make me beautiful, ’ ‘Moving on, ’ ‘Unfinished Symphonies, ’ ‘You thought of me, ’ ‘Breathtaking Autumn, ’ ‘Diamond ring, ’ ‘Love me with your eyes, ’ ‘Newly fallen rain’ and ‘The sound of peace’ are really notable milestones and worthy poems. These give different identity to her as a fearless poetess of the time. (Part-3)

Best Poem of Practicing Poetess

Newly Fallen Rain

Raindrops glistening on tree leaves
Like diamonds in the sun,
Tiny little rivulets
Of water on the run,
Rain cascades from gutters like
A waterfall's begun,
Instant birdbaths for the birds,
They're having lots of fun.

As I listen to the steady
Drip and every drop,
I begin to wonder if
It's ever going to stop!
Trees are bending in the wind
Despite their soaking tops,
My poor balcony's a mess,
I'll have to get the mop!
