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.

    crusted in grit and crushed dead leaves
    in a rotting pile of trash
    the color of clay mud
    a skeletal hand
    lying stone still
