It’s Sunday. I’ve been to my local writing group, and perhaps due to the habit of Napowrimo, I wrote poetry there, instead of my usual prose. It must be rubbing off on me.
After group I had a quick shopping trip then returned home to the waiting in-laws, followed by an impromptu visit from my sister-in-law’s family. It’s been a hectic but sociable Sunday. As for Napowrimo… I’m playing catch-up yet again.
Not shying from the challenge, I answered the prompt quite literally. Here is my response to the prompt: Because today is the ninth day of NaPoWriMo, I’d like to challenge you to write a nine-line poem.
Nine Fine Lines Of Rhyme
Today I write a poem in rhyme.
Today I’ll try not to post too late.
The poem must have nine structured lines,
Not 12, not 10, not a mere 8.
I’m happy I’ve written the first four.
There is the fifth. Here is the sixth.
I’ve never written in nines before.
I hope the rhyming doesn’t get mixed,
although I’m sure it’s easily fixed.
