#New Poetry Form – Nonet – Daylight Savings
the clock has gone forward by one hour
time to get moving it’s still dark
body says it’s too early
mind agrees heartily
A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, etc… until line nine that finishes with one syllable.
It can be on any subject and rhyming is optional.
You can also write a second stanza in reverse, 1-9 syllables, for a kind of opposite or mirror.
