Friday Fling #198 for September 21st 2012

The Friday Fling closes summer with The End..

Michelle here: With the last day of summer we are writing about the end of something… it can be the end of a season such as summer,the end of a game, the end of a day as the sun sinks to the other side of the world, the end of a romance or write about a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. It can be anything that has to do with “The End”

A format I suggest would be 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 that finishes withone 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

I thought this would go perfect with the topic since it starts out with 9 syllables and comes to “the end” with 1 syllable.

Here is an example:

a pirates playground

the ocean is a pirate’s playground
they live their lives upon the sea
battles are fought to the death
the loot is divided
they drink to those lost
set sail again
‘a pirate’s
life for
me

This week the Friday Fling writes Nonets about The End!
Be sure to save time to read and comment externally on your fellow Pals’ terminal poeticals. Then go enjoy the first weekEnd after the end of summer!


Fickle Finger of Fate Award for September 14th

Congratulations Tony!

  1. Welcome everyone to the Friday Fling’s End of Summer party! Actually the topic is The End, of anything. And The Means is the Nonet. So park your end, pull up your syllable counter and let your muse cruise to the blues or the joys of an End!

    GOLD AT THE END -- NOT

    Been chasein rainbow all my life seems
    Never to catch just a glimmer
    Mind you I did try hard
    To no avail to fine
    Just a little crumb
    A speck will do
    My gold Pot
    Rainbow
    End

  8. This is a Decet. That’s a Nonet with ten lines instead of nine. Yes I made up the name. I like it better than Etheree, which is basically the same format. I wrote this for the Thematic Attic Thursday challenge yesterday, where Diane and Bettie were looking for wreites about believing in yourself.

    Photobucket

    MIRACLE ON BELIEF STREET

    A Dramatic Decet

    Little Natalie Wood did not believe
    in Santa, therefore not in herself.
    Her new dad suggested she should.
    So she said, cynically:
    “I believe, I believe.”
    But she was loved more
    than she could know.
    Because her
    wish came
    true.

    Scotorum Reply:

    one secret is to get a good ending line and see if you can break it up into 4-3-2-1 then you only have 5-6-7-8-9 to write -- from there start with 9 and fill in with 8-7-6-5 explaining sort of like playing Yahtze too on those middle lines, as the options reduce you may have to prine by cutting a connector word or two like “the” and/or replacing a word with one with more or fewer syllables

    Why does the world go on as I am breathing

    Why`s my heart feel as it is empty inside
    He said he doesn`t love anything, anyone

    The world commit to still evolve onward
    Never the less on what we think may
    Happen are want too accrue be
    Sunrise sunset moonlight
    Still the same be bright
    Come hell are not
    Will there even
    Be hell
    Yet

    A particularly thought-provoking one (((Bettie))). I suppose if you look at every day as unique and changing things, the end of the world happens every day -- some more than others :roll: 8-O :!:

  16. love’s uncertain end

    the end of our foray to love’s door
    lacking in trust and insecure
    we were distracted by fear
    i still love you my dear
    can we overcome
    what made us run
    unity
    could it
    be

    AUTUMN’S WALTZ

    Summer has taken her final breath,
    days growing short as Fall arrives;
    waltzing leaves of red and gold
    floating down to the ground
    as their autumn dance,
    silent and still,
    finally
    comes to
    rest.
