#NaPoWriMo: A Poem A Day – Day 9 & 10

Hi everyone! Today is day ten of the national poetry month competition. I missed yesterday, as my Saturday ended up being more full on than I’d anticipated.

Here’s my offering >>>


[Instructions:] Day nine asked for a Nonnet, so I’ve incorporated that into today’s challenge, which asks for a love poem. So, here’s my “love nonnet” … 😉


You don’t come around often enough

Your absence makes my mouth water

Full of anticipation 

For that guilty pleasure

Your taste on my tongue

Yummy texture

Managed sin



A Nonnet has nine lines and begins with nine syllables. Each line loses a syllable, so we have a syllable count of 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1.

I couldn’t resist writing a Love Nonnet for a certain secret love in my life, which I have to limit my exposure to! I hope you enjoyed this bit of fun.

Have a wonderful day, everyone, and I’ll see you tomorrow with Day Eleven on the NaPoWriMo 30 Day Poetry Challenge 🙂

I liked this poem, Harmony. It gave me a smile on a dark, gloomy evening.

I’m discovering I have to limit my love for a lot of foods these days. What I really crave right now is chocolate Easter eggs. I don’t care what kind. I can’t have the sugar or carbs. Pizza is also another thing I can’t have.I enjoyed your poem.


This was so much fun and very clever. I’ve never tried this form, but you’ve inspired me. Big hugs, Harmony. 🤗
