Funny how one little drop can start something flowing isn't it? Keep the rain barrel out ;^)

Take care,

My leak is one of those once every couple of months jobs.. when the wind is right and so forth, so short of replacing the entire roof (will be due in the next few years I guess) I think we can live with it for a while yet. Not the kind of job I want to do myself {:~@}

Ok a bit of explanation (and oops Bob.. sorry you Did comment)
First I loved Bobs dripping drops and dropping drips, and also I could relate to his poem and predicament!
So title. It was from one drip to another, but I didn't want to possibly insult Bob.
Ahhh - when said could be R (for Robert/Bob)
Icy - a triple banger plus this one!! Icy is obviously a state of water. Spoken it is I see. Spelt it is I see why.
Aqueous humour - refers to part of the eye..hence I see in the first line. Self references itself to be a "wet joke"
one drip to another - ie me to Bob humorously of course, but couldbe a tear from earlier said eye- crying over the condition of our leaky rooves.
Ohh Ohh - The chemical formula for water is H2O. hence two drips.
what a - when read loud (allowed) approximates "water".
rime - a particular formation of water (hoar frost I believe. Also sounds like Rhyme

Sublime- 1. Of high spiritual, moral, or intellectual worth.
2. Not to be excelled; supreme.
3 Inspiring awe; impressive.
4 Also a process of solid going to hoarfrost evaporating.

and of course a rhyme sublime is exactly that!
*cough* Glenn rubs his fist below his left shoulder

So there you go.

this is poetry. I never studied it, never liked it (because I was ignorant to it). but never has someone taken the time to say these things to me. I am touched. by reading your explanation it got me thinking, then thinking now that I have to stop writing here and go blog this. will come back once published to let you know.

Ahh yes but your poetry is natural and from the heart. you have so much natural rhythm etc. But really there are quite a few technical terms to describe and write poetry. Most books about poetry will have a good list, and explain how they are used to create effects for the reader. At school the techniques are usually named and students have to try and find examples. My feeling is write and read what you enjoy! A lot of the technique will come naturally

It is good for me to get your explanations too, I'm like swan, didn't really study it, although I did like it. God... how I 'wasted' my school years!
