Invented Forms

The Nonet is a popular invented stanzaic form that can be found all over the internet. Both Poetry Base and Shadow Poetry feature it as well as several other poetic communities.

The elements of the Nonet are:

  1. stanzaic, written in any number of 9 line stanzas.
  2. syllabic, 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 syllables per line.
  3. usually unrhymed.

    tangled tight within brush and brambles
    crusted in grit and crushed dead leaves
    in a putrid pile of trash
    the color of clay mud
    a skeletal hand
    lying stone still
    suddenly
    flinches.
    Once

Two for Me, Please

"Its a magic world, Hobbes, ol' buddy."
grinned Calvin, "Let's go exploring!"
Little boy and his tiger
find fun, love and laughter,
in sunshine or rain
with night goggles
and nap sacks.
Best friends!
Cool!

The Red, Red Rose

On my dining table I've arranged
a bouquet of six red roses.
It was five dollar Friday
and the deal of the day.
No romantic gift,
For me, from me,
Beautiful!
