Word Count Fibonacci

Rain Shower

The rain beats a tattoo on my window
drumming the glass in staccato
a million droplets,
each one
to fall
in the drain
where jointly they gargle loudly
creating a cacophony of music to interrupt sleep


I am a lady of doubtful age, greying at the temples, and enjoying the benefits of retirement. I enjoy words and have developed a love of Haiku, Tanka, Fibonacci and other forms of short poetry. The challenge of saying as much as possible in as few words as possible is a challenge indeed for any female. I'm having success with my poetry and am now also a published author of short fiction stories. I am presently working on a novelette. It's all 'word play' - which I love.
