...Now Try A Nonet

Post  aL1801 on Wed Mar 09, 2011 2:12 am

A nonet is a nine line poem - doesn't have to rhyme.
First line has nine syllables and each succeeding line is reduced by one syllable until the ninth line - 1 syllable is reached.

Summat like this'n.


I love to wander round shopping malls
Goodies there keep me enthralled.
Although my budget says no
I keep wanting to go
Without any dough
Oh why is it
Just my lot
To be
Three

What pray, is this i see before me
A gauntlet thrown upon the sand?
An interesting challenge
A play on words no less
To keep my poor brain
Compos mentis
Dementia
Kept at
Bay

My cat
Sat on the mat
Dreaming of juicy mice
Trod on his tail, boy did he wake.

Magpie
Scrawking loudly
Startled by our footsteps
Springs lightly into sudden flight
Alone

Ah, but what if the mind refuses;
Darkness blocks the light and muses.
Where do I begin to find
Words of a poet's kind?
Is there really hope?
My soul says 'nope'.
But somewhere
It's there.
Here?

Listen!
What do I hear?
A sigh, a moan, a cry
Shall I go to see who needs me?
I'll run.

I'm so glad you joined in and here's hoping that this will stir others up. I mentioned in previous forum, fan story: www.fanstory.com. Do have a serious look at it and please, feel free to join.

PS: We can also do stories. I'm wondering if, a story about a friend - er, and maybe a sibling, trying out a new liquid diet. No names, no KP. This wouldn't be to "Tuff" a chore, eh. Smile


I'm glad
The juices flow
Gone is the writer's block
Take up the pen,don't let it down
Just write

The nice thing is that, considering mine and his childhood, I have a lot from which I can draw.
There are times that I am still amazed at what a colorful and FUN childhood we had.
