Simply Snickers: Nonet

This week's Simply Snicker's Challenge uses the words vain (or vane), veil (or vail), and very.

I chose a very unique and creative poetic style called Nonet. This poetic form consists of 9 Lines (9 syllables) which gradually taper off to one syllable. If you are interested, please give it a go!! Hope you enjoy. The accompany portrait is A Young Woman and Her Little Boy by Agnolo Bronzino.

Portrait of a lady's decadence

Veil secrets masked in opulence

Young lad tucked in vain display

Peeking from her red dress

Trim and frills brighten

A very lost

lovely nonet! its really a very nice form!

if i could make a suggestion, nonets look even more attractive if centre aligned. :)

Well done! Came over to check you out and much
to my surprise this lovely work. Your portrait
and insight stired my imagination. Makes one
look beyond, intering into that quite place where words unspoken speak.
