Lucky Dip – Saturday Mix, 14 August 2021

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 14 August 2021!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, Sarah has pulled out a Nonet. The topic is up to us!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Nonet?

A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, etc… until line nine finishes with one syllable. It can be on any subject and rhyming is optional.

line 1 – 9 syllables
line 2 – 8 syllables
line 3 – 7 syllables
line 4 – 6 syllables
line 5 – 5 syllables
line 6 – 4 syllables
line 7 – 3 syllables
line 8 – 2 syllables
line 9 – 1 syllables

Thanks Sarah!
This is my contribution this week which was previously posted in August 2016

SUNSET
Sun
Setting
Layered sky
Colours hanging
Spellbound, soft, serene
Gently sink behind hills
Purples, pinks, blues and yellow,
Stunning beauty for all to see
Reflected image in the water

Stunning beauty for all to see
Purples, pinks, blues, and yellow,
Gently sink behind hills,
Spellbound, soft, serene,
Colours hanging,

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
