Poetic Words


Poetic Words (A Nonet Poem)


When I see the wonders in the world,
When I encounter Nature’s best,
Beautiful words fill my head.
Just like sweet symphony,
When my Muse moves
Poetic phrases
Fall freely

Author Notes Things of nature can set it off, my Muse.
This is a Nonet Poem, done in non-rhyming free verse.

A nonet is a nine line poem. The first line containing nine syllables, the next line has eight syllables, the next line has seven syllables. That continues until the last line (the ninth line) which has one syllable. Nonets can be written about any subject. Rhyming is optional. There is no limitation to the number of words per line. Only syllables per line. This provides a great deal of flexibility.

The picture is one I shot in July 2012. Took the photo as I was driving in my convertible with the top down. Of course. I pulled over to take the shot.
