Biography of Practicing Poetess

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!

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!
