Practicing Poetess Poems
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!
What are we doing to our eyesight
Living on computers, both day and night?
Will we go blind at an early age
Just because devices are all the rage?
Will we atrophy, and become fat
Because all day, before a computer we sat?
Will our social skills decline
Will we lose a free-thinking mind?
Will it be 'stimulus, response'
