The End: A Ninette

For this Tuesday’s poetics prompt, we at DVerse are writing about “the end.” I wrote several poems on this topic and will share the one that I like best. It is in a form called a ninette, with 9 lines and a syllable count of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, ,2, 1. It seemed to go well with the theme.


One

Day life

Will cease, like

A candle, out

Out, brief! The wax looks

Like tears in eyes

Filled with grief —

Void of

Breath.
