she sways, breathing her life into me
to and fro, she inflames passion
heart racing, my breath deepens
I reach for her, wanting
she dances away
My attempt at a Nonet poem for Paint The World With Words‘ Poetic Form of the Week. This is a simple format, but difficult in the execution. After several false starts, I used a random word generator to come up with a subject for the poem. Fortunately, that word ended up being “minx” which helped focus my thoughts!
The nonet consists of nine lines that break down like so:
line 1 – 9 syllables
line 2 – 8 syllables
line 3 – 7 syllables
line 4 – 6 syllables
line 5 – 5 syllables
line 6 – 4 syllables
line 7 – 3 syllables
line 8 – 2 syllables
line 9 – 1 syllable
Hope you enjoy my attempt. Head on over to PTWWW and check out other’s poems. Feel free to add your own!
Happy Reading and Writing!
