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 Nonet Series Poem, which incorporates a Double Inverted Nonet and regular Double Nonet too.
I have also made this a found poem as well. Since the theme for the challenge is “Hint & Bold” this week, I have used the poem “Love” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge as my own inspiration, with its bold hints of luscious wordplay throughout.
You can read Samuel’s sumptuous and divine poem over here:-
“Love” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge over at Poetry Foundation
Finally, here is my found poem, thank you for reading and hope you enjoy it!

“A Maiden Voyage” by David Ellis A Found Nonet Series Poem Inspired by “Love” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge Our Passions Stirs, delights Feed waking dreams Blended with hope, art Amid lingering light Songs that make moving story Wild with grace, burning long and deep Pleading love, with eyes that fondly flame This lovely day, beautiful and bright Stealing the scene, dear friend, again Gentle wishes, lay beside Tending to impulses Music, rich, sacred Interpreted Soul and sense Against Heart The tenderest of words are mortal Modest, guileless, from hopes we choose They love us best, when we sing When we stood and listened Madness went away Fears long subdued Ruin, rested Conscious Calm Swells Voice, name Starting up Happy again Sorrows could not last The mountain there was crossed A maiden voyage, well wooed All are unknowing, when midway Embrace what won pride, with tears of joy

Wonderful! I love ‘sorrows could not last’! Only if it was true!
