Mercurial

Here is a nonet I wrote yesterday with nine syllables in the first line and one in the ninth. The photos are old but from the heart and slightly mercurial.

Mercurial 

Nine is the times you cried for my love.
Eight times I said no and cried back.
Seven was not even when
six came down to feisty 
five, then mercurial
four: which is when
three minus
two left
one.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. Wow, what a beautiful poem ~ so emotional and artistic… matches the wonderful photo as well. The best photos are often old but as you say if they come from the heart, and slightly mercurial, they are that much more special.
    And I really like your new profile photo ~ awesome 🙂
