NaPoWriMo Day #7: Nonet on Life

Today I’m taking from my creative writing’s prompt “write a nonet on the meaning life” (I made that prompt by the way haha!) A nonet is a poem consisting of nine lines, with a drop of a syllable with each progressing (or shall I say, digressing) line. So the formula goes line 9=9 syllables; line 8=8 syllables all the way to line 1, which only has 1 syllable. Nonets are actually pretty cool and they require you to speak more with less wording. Definitely a satisfying challenge!


Multifaceted is the mindset
machines programmed differently
with unique missions granted.
Unlike journeys paved for
unlike endings and
thus our meaning
is not the
same for
all.
