I Do

Composed 10/12/16
Description: Wanted to try something different and get some inspiration for today’s Daily Prompt, so I researched some poetic forms for fun. Found the cute little nonet, in which you start at nine syllables and take one away each line until you get to one. “Nonet” is believed to be the word for a group of nine performers or instruments; thus, it is likely a form inspired by music. And, indeed, I think it has a very musical ring. Surprised at how quickly it came together. 

At nine in the morning I hear it
The tone of your thoughts rings out loud
I float on clouds and sunbeams
As the sky blues and grays
Then I remember
Think I’ll respond
Tomorrow
Promise
Love

  1. Love your poem, but you need to change “ringing” to “rings” as you have nine syllables in the second line as well as the first. But that is nitpicking. I think you did a great job and now I need to do one.
