Reverse Nonet/Nonet: Free to Fly

A while back, I learned about a beautiful form of poetry known as the Nonet.  I have to admit, I feel more comfortable writing a Reverse Nonet, but in this instance – someone asked me to write both, and make sense both backwards and forwards.  It’s not as easy as it may seem 🙂  Enjoy!

Free
To fly
Rising high
I touch the sky
Arms outstretched, I ache
To cross the wilderness
To stretch beyond all I’ve known
There is beauty found in longing
Held within this very heart of mine

Held within this very heart of mine
There is beauty found in longing
To stretch beyond all I’ve known
To cross the wilderness
Arms outstretched, I ache
I touch the sky
Rising high
To fly
Free

      Thank you so much. Yeah, me too – wings to fly. Sadly, I’m afraid of heights (suppressing a giggle) so it probably wouldn’t work well, but I think I would enjoy the freedom of it. Thank you so very much for sharing!
