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

Excellent! I love the idea of “mapped water.” All those ripples taking you to new destinations. ❤
Nice poem! First time I’m reading a nonet poem. Maybe I’ll try to create one soon 🙂 Thank you for the inspiration.
Good job! Nonnets can be fun or torture. Looks like you had fun with it.
