Lady Luck

Lady Luck ~ (the Nonet) 

Tears, shadows that swallow other tears
united and out of control
eyes decompose like soft coal
water, in swimming hole
everglade pistol 
celestial toll
river pole 
dead soul


again, pause
deep darken jaws
engraved, digging claws
deteriorating flaws 
still alive, eating what was
waste, rain, disabling because
nature lingers, emotional raw


Nonet, 9 lines, 
beginning 9 syllables, then 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 syllable(s) ~ I hope~

for RICK'S contest...

    I know what I like and I like this. Why ? I think because It is like scotch on the rocks ;Bitter but familiar and because it is familiar it is almost comfortable . It is also a little bit dangerous like scotch if you want to much. Keep on keeping on Linda. Your card should read Poems While U Wait !

    Amazing, stunning and marvellous double-nonet! I'm speechles. The word choice is great as controoled with the syllables count. This must have taken a long time preparation. Enjoyed the flow. Looking forward to seeing further similar work of you, thanks for sharing. Love, Khalid.

    You are a popular poet judging by the amount of comments you receive.Very ambitous of you to work with such a difficult form. Keep'em coming! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    ending perfectly, with "emotional raw"....each line of it is of raw emotion, and you wrote with excellence, as usual. :)

    This is great in either direction. TLee

    You have used the nonet and reverse nonet well in conveying someone who is without luck and feels down, out of place and hopelessness...Well written. Take care. Janet

    Well titled! I'm reluctant to try the NONET as I'm sure mine wouldn't come out as fluidly as yours! Well done, dp! Best wishes, Keith
