Fussy Little Forms: “Nonet” (posted by Marian)
A nonet is defined as a combination of nine instruments or voices, or a musical composition for such a combination. The word comes from Italian nonetto or nono–nine.
In poetry, a nonet is a nine-line poem in which the first line contains nine syllables, the next line 8, and so on until the final one-syllable line.
No rhyme required, and no particular topic or subject. You can also write a second stanza in reverse, 1-9 syllables, for a kind of opposite or mirror.
fresh fruit, read
new poems, old poems.
Comment, jot ideas–
simple drafts for later.
Out for a walk with my dogs
some light sketching, crossword puzzles
Words begin to blur, time for a nap.
After nine, I am recharged, wide-eyed
as that pink drum-playing bunny.
Nighttime beckons; my brain whirs.
Oh, that could work quite well!
Poems play chameleon
sense of me.
