Today’s prompt:

Write a nonet on the meaning of life (a nonet is a 9-lined poem, with each line containing one less syllable than the prior, so line 1 contains 9 syllables, line 2 contains 8 and so on…)

Post your poem to comments!

  1. – Following the NaPoWriMo prompt

    Once there was a time in my life,
    Where the moon and the sun still seemed eclipsed,
    By the unhappiness, the veil of misery.

    Then there was a sudden momentum pushing away from the misery.
    The movement of the sun rays took over, and brought light to life,
    I was no longer sitting on a single rock, eclipsed.

    No longer eclipsed,

    My entire life started to rise above the clouds.
    Happiness started to overweigh sadness.
    Challenges and difficult tasks
    seemed to get easier.
    It’s crazy to think
    that I am
    a survivor.

    In a world filled with so much hatred,
    the meaning of life, existence,
    and human creation is,
    to share the love with all,
    with the human race,
    with all that lives.
    There is no
    time to
