3WW - Nonet

Funny - Remember - Theatre

In music, a nonet is a composition which requires nine musicians for a performance.
In poetry, a nonet is a nine line poem, with the first line containing nine syllables, the next eight, so on until the last line has one syllable. Nonets can be written about any subject, and rhyming is optional.

Music speaks to the heart in rhythms
of swaying grass and bouncing balls
a theatre of sounds play
a funny little tune
or a symphony
to remember
just listen
to your
heart

I watch many movies but this little "sleeper" touched my heart and made me weep with joy. I hear music everyday after seeing this movie. ;)

p.s. - I love the Rachael Yamagata song, and I didn't know of her before. Thanks, Tammy!

A lovely nonet - you make it sound and look easier than it is, I think! I don't know the movie but will certainly be on the watch for it - thanks!

You seem to understand the mysticism of music.
Nicely done.

Tam,
I rented the movie the same night after we spoke. I can be very obedient (AT TIMES)!
It was a sweet movie....I just had a little issue with the end which I'll tell ya private so as not to ruin it for folks.
But onto more important thing...your poem. Holy crap. You just keep getting better...and continue to touch my heart every time.

I love ya,
Nance

A delightful poem; a great way to use the prompt. I had not heard of this movie before, but like Tumblewords, I'll be on the lookout for it.

I'd never heard of a nonet in poetry - you've done a lovely job, Tammy! xoxox

I liked this.

Though I've found that listening to the heart is harder than one might think... my head just speaks loudly as well.

Fun poem wasn't it? A cool little form to play with....good job! And, I loved the movie (saw it twice)!~

PS As for the movie, if you allow it the same suspension of disbelief you give to, say, Lord of the Rings, you'll love it!

Your poetry continues to speak to me, surprise me with truths that I can feel at a body level.
thanks for the movie recommendation. I'm adding it to my netflix.

Amber said...

ME TOO! I thought this was one of the best movies I saw last year! I loved it. Just loved it.

If you liked that, you have to rent a movie (another little sleeper from a few years back) called THE MIGHTY. You will love.

:)

I can relate to "a funny little tune" sometimes with memories and all I just can't stop a tune from whistlin' right out of my mouth.

My husband watched it and he said it was really good. I was busy cleaning our house for a party the next day. I should have just sat down with my hubby to watch...
