EXERCISE Poetry Challenge #21 -- Waterfall Nonet

    My request for this challenge is a nonet styled poem about a waterfall. Waterfalls are magnificent cascades that fall from unimaginable heights. One of the most beautiful sights in nature! We're all familiar with that, though, I'm sure. What you're probably wondering is, "What in the world is a nonent?!" Well, I am here to tell you:

    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 that 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 syllable

    The above information is from Shadow Poetry. And, I encourage you to make the poem(s) look pretty with bbcodes. Don't hesitate to ask any questions!

  2. We Live, Water Falls

    Delicate ripples cascade down as

    Rounded rocks roll round and around.
    Silver fish swim swift up stream
    Through grass grown ever green.
    A man on a log
    Spies a lone frog
    As water
    Flows and

  3. Back Where It All Began

    [RAINBOW]Old beauty of the waterfall.[/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]Lost in memory good and[/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]Bad. Contemplate my life, [/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]I will find my calm.[/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]Rushing water,[/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]Take me now.[/RAINBOW]
    [RAINBOW]At last,[/RAINBOW]

  4. Water Falls

    A ribbon of crystal blue cascades
    Along the rocky mountain side
    Crashing in a gentle mist
    Of cool lingering white
    Crystal clear water
    A sweet whisper
    Soft and hush
