Fighting to the End

I’m going to be trying a new style called a nonet.  I was told about this style by dribblingpensioner who is a very talented poet.  I am very thankful that he took the time to explain this poetic style to me.

The battle goes on for days and days

As my muscles begin to lock

My enemies are weakened

By my will to fight on

As I march forward

Denying pain

Soon I win

And they


(Poem a Day Event by The Ranting Papizilla.)

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    This flows nicely- would be great to work into a story/book sometime!


  4. Ooooh, very cool form! I’m going to be honest — when I saw the poem style was a “nonet”, I thought you were going to mess with us and just post blank space instead of words (i.e., a “non-et” — a non-poem). But I like your version better 😀


    • Thanks. I was told about the poetic style yesterday and at first I didn’t even realize it was a style. I thought it was a typo until I re-read his comment. I’m glad I took up the challenge and it went smoothly.


  5. Nicely done Charles. I have seen this form a few other times, but have not tried it myself.
