COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 194 #SYNONYMSONLY – “A Maiden Voyage” by David Ellis – A Found #Nonet Series Poem Inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

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

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
Soul and sense
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
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
