beating on a Plexiglas roof this morning – rainfall
a concert of drips, wind and rhythmic drops
with a growing crescendo – down the gutter – waters flowing
impetuous the whooshing and splashing – cause me to arise
thus arising I go to my loggia – falling rain drops glisten
plic, plonk, drip drip, toc tick tocks …
a chiming of the hour and now my computer hums
I write to these percussion beats this early autumn refrain
… morning rain

One of the most interesting aspects of OctPoWriMo is being able to encounter many poets from around the world but also there’s the chance to learn a new form or technique.
I read a lovely verse written by Bohemian Nerd … in a form I’d never heard of … the only thing I’ve changed (because sometimes I personalize forms to fit my needs) was to eliminate the word – echo – which is repeated throughout the poem … leaving the echoes and ending the poem with two words instead of one. (Echo Poem) Here’s the link to the original poem that inspired me to write this modified version: “Patience” by Bohemian Nerd .
