Poem: Nonets –  “Changing Direction.” 

Variety is amusing when you,

Search tirelessly for new,

Finding what you wanted,

Was with you the whole —

Time, you discovered,

The latest,

Was old —



Significant realization,

You existed in my pocket,

Conversing hours with you,

Randomly circle,

Do this each week,

Running far,




Warmth and laughter, ice cold chiseled,

Eyes reflecting, a mirror you see,

Attracting what I give,

Start reflecting more light,

Growth, absorption.

Live something new.

  1. I’m in awe of anyone who write poetry in formats like this — it seems so challenging to me — much less to make it work so well. Great job! I especially was caught by the line about realizing “you existed in my pocket”. Great image.

    In other news, I just nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World blogging award. I know not everyone participates in these, but I thought it was fun and thought you’d like it too! Go blogger sister!

    1. Thanks so much Joy. I will see if I have the time to do it this week. It is very kind of you to nominate me. Hope it’s okay though if I get to busy and I’m not able to do it.

      You could definitely do poetry. It is all about counting syllables for the most part and fitting words that sound good and you like within those syllables. It gets a bit more complicated, but most is like that. Glad you liked the poem. Thank you again!

      1. I’m embarrassed to say that it took me MONTHS to get around to doing this blog award post, so if you don’t have time right away, I can’t throw stones!

        I wrote a lot of poetry in college (how cliche, I know) but it was almost all free form. Funny, I don’t at all mind structure when it comes to writing song lyrics, even though that’s exactly the same kind of restriction for meter and rhyme. Hm, I guess I don’t always make sense. 🙂
