Today, I try my hands on a Nonet. This poetic form has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, right until the last line, a single syllable. I hope you like it.
open the door to his bleeding heart
you’ll find her indelible mark
the hard rain of yesternight
makes it more glittering
a stone-like relic

I appreciate your patience with me as I catch up on your blogs. Thanks a million! Shalom
Oh, I love that! What a great job you did with it. I will have to try that one eventually! Thank you for sharing this style with us, Celestine! Big hugs!
Thank you Skye. I’ve been toying with the idea for some time now since I found out about this form on a couple of blogs. Today I went visiting at Poet’s Corner ( I think that is the name, I’m so forgetful it is becoming embarrassing) and I just decided to give it a shot!
Well, you did a wonderful job! When I do it, I am going to mention that I learned about it here! 😀
Is that so? Then I’m grateful 🙂 can’t wait to read yours my dear.
lol…of course! Sitting here now over lunch playing around with one. I think I left my brain at the food store, though. There is not much going on up there between my ears…but I do hear the moths flying around. I need a nap. 😀 Have a great day/evening, Lovey!!
Me and food are buddies! Get your muse back before it disappears into somebody’s mouth. Nap well, my dear. It’s evening here and preparing to close for day and then head off home!
Have a great night…be safe!! Zzzzzzzzzzz

Wow. Gasp! I want to know the whole story with this one. Tantalizing.
Seriously there is no story in this one, Alice. Sometimes, I drag some things up from the past and twist them round a bit for effect! 🙂
Alice Keys said:
Good job you creative queen on romance. 🙂
Ow, I’m blushing!
Alice Keys said:
Your stories make me blush. But in a nice way.
A really good poem, full of emotion. I loved the layout and the form of this– Must be quite difficult…must try my hands on this style…:)
Thanks Celestine 🙂
You are so welcome my dear. I know you will be very good at it, better than I really. I would very much love to read your Nonet!
