My Take – Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 168 #SynonymsOnly

I always have to look up names of syllabic forms to pick one to use. Colleen provides excellent tools to help us.

The synonyms for this week are: COMFORT and WORN.

I’m going to try a Nonet.

NONET: A Nonet is stanzaic and written in any number of 9-line stanzas with the following syllable count per line: 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 syllables per line. It can be written on any subject and rhyming is optional, although they are usually unrhymed. Because of the hourglass shape of a double nonet, it’s often used to represent the passage of time.
