A Fish Tale Nonet

All day, singly, fishing birds surveil

huddled in persistent rain-filled

spaces between wild grasses.

No reflected shadows,


grim sky above

lake opaque.




Written for a  prompt at imaginary garden with real toads “fussy little forms” to write a nonet, “a nine-line poem in which the first line contains nine syllables, the next line eight, and so on until the final one-syllable line.”
