COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 192, #THEMEPROMPT – “More Than Quiet Waves” by David Ellis – A Found Reverse #Nonet Poem Inspired by Elizabeth Bishop

Hello there friends.

I’ve been writing poetry again, joining in the fun over at Colleen Chesebro’s website for her “Colleen’s 2020 Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge”.

Today I have written a Reverse Nonet Poem. This means that the lines of the poem can be read either from top to bottom or from bottom to top!

I have also made this a found poem as well. Since the theme for the challenge this week is “Maps”, I have used the poem “The Map” by Elizabeth Bishop as my own inspiration.

You can read Elizabeth Bishop’s wonderful poem here:-

Finally, here is my found poem, thank you for reading and hope you enjoy it!

“More Than Quiet Waves” by David Ellis
A Found Reverse Nonet Poem

In water, are edges showing sea
Simple blue green, drawing itself
Tugging, still oiled under glass
Blossom, invisible
Cities, mountains here
The excitement
emotion
water
mapped

And here it is again reversed:-

mapped
water
emotion
The excitement
Cities, mountains here
Blossom, invisible
Tugging, still oiled under glass
Simple blue green, drawing itself
In water, are edges showing sea
