Happy weekend, friends! Today, let’s try writing a NONET.
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. I thought of nonet because of its similarity to the fibonacci that Kerry had us playing with last weekend--love it!--but I have never tried a nonet. Have you?
Also could not find any good examples of a nonet poem online, other than this one by Robert Lee Brewer at Writer’s Digest. So let’s do something about that.
Hey, hey, we like the nonet! 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1… and, go!
Marian -- thank you. This looks challenging and cute too, but I don't know if I can do it as have a very short weekend. Still, it is so nice to "hear" your voice. Hope all well. k.
Thanks for a great prompt! I'm so glad I found you guys, you sure know how to have fun!
This form is not so fussy but interesting!
I will see what I can come up with. Thank you!
Not so easy... don't know if mine made any sense...
Oh dread, form poetry...but I wrote one. Yeah for me. lol
More fun wriing, thank you Marian. I'm on the edge of the bed writing, my Nonet and now this. I'm composing on my old Galaxy 5 Android smart phone. I think my spelling is okay, grammer has poetic license even though I'm not a poet.
Lights out. TV on 30 minutes 'Sleep', and the second session of Fraser has run ten minutes.
I like this form. I wrote mine yesterday but couldn't post it until this morning. Have a wonderful Sunday, Toads!
A nice one to play with! Thank you.
this looks like a lot of fun, Marian.
Hello, friends. Look at all these entries, how wonderful. I'm off to read!
Thanks for a great prompt Marian. I opted for a reverse Nonet.
Love this form. Thank you Marion. Enjoy your Sunday.
Playing late... Thanks for the prompt.
