Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Lucky Dip – Saturday Mix, 14 August 2021

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

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Nonet. The topic is up to you!

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

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…


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


Midnight's Breath

It came sweetly upon midnight's breath,

that turned seasons from white to green,

and brought the pre-dawn sparrows

to chirp a merry tune...

nestled securely

on, around, and

    This is an old poem but I’ve always liked it as it went with my photo and works in reverse too. Hope that is acceptable.
