Nonet – NOW

by journeyintopoetry

Poetry challenge: Nonet.

How healing to live in the moment!

allowing yourself to be breathed

anticipating nothing

leaving the past behind

without any hold,

living today

just being

  1. Beautiful, Christine. It looks like an arrow head that has settled itself in the moment of time that is ‘now’.

    I tried to write a nonet (see my latest post, Refractions) as I love this form, but these particular words in my soul would not be constrained by form – they had to reach the page just as they were. I will, however, try again!! You are an inspiration. 🙂 xx

  2. Thank you Angela!

    I enjoy these. But your Refractions poem is meant to be exactly as it is and its beauty is gentle and soft, I love it:)

  3. This is sooooo wonderful! I especially love the second line ‘allowing yourself to be breathed’ – beautiful! I sometimes use that idea when leading meditations, inviting people to ‘just let yourself be breathed’. Ok, I’m officially inspired, I need to go write a nonet! I’ll be back! Love and congrats, H xxxx

  4. Nice poem, you both got your wish for a Nonet 🙂

  5. Christine that’s a good principle to expand on as you did~ very good !
