I first heard about a Nonet via fellow blogger, Draliman. A Nonet is a poem with nine lines. The first line has 9 syllables, the second 8 and so on until the 9th line has only 1.
Today would have been my sister’s birthday, she would have been 33. In 2005 she was taken from us very suddenly and we miss her every day. She only ever drank Jack Daniels on the rocks, so every year now I have one on her birthday. This year I decided to add a Nonet in her honor.
This one is for Cila:
You were a naughty, crazy, wild one
Always laughing, full of passion
Happy birthday my sister
Taken away too soon
Your light shines on us
Each night and day
