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 Nonet is:

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

    tangled tight within brush and brambles

    crusted in grit and crushed dead leaves

    in a rotting pile of trash

    the color of clay mud

    a skeletal hand

    lying stone still

    suddenly

    flinches.
