Fenced from memory I gaze up
Words freed from imagination
Longing whispers into blue
Incantations I spell
With rhythmic cadence
Mark the white

Today’s prompt: Day Nine: “Today, because it’s a Saturday, I thought I’d try a prompt that asks you to write in a specific form – the nonet! A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second has eight, and so on until you get to the last line, which has just one syllable.”
