NAPOWRIMO 2017 ~ Day Nine ~Oceans and Poetry

Because today is the ninth day of NaPoWriMo, I’d like to challenge you to write a nine-line poem. Although the fourteen-line sonnet is often considered the “baseline” form of verse in English, Sir Edmund Spenser wrote The Faerie Queene using a nine-line form of his own devising, and poetry in other languages (French, most particularly) has always taken advantage of nine-line forms.


Oceans are faithful and so is poetry

when emotions awake,waves arise

stilling exciting the mind and eyes

stirring the soul when beauty manifests

sinking into the spirits fathoms within

creating storms or filling joy,then

search for truly real words,begins

surging surfing receding waves on crest

 settle as thoughts so formed, come to rest
