Chaste – #writephoto



With the turn of a key, confined now
Within my gaol of chastity
Last light filters through the bars
Father’s one concession
Our last, parting kiss
My lover’s face
Is fading

My response to Sue Vincent’s (Daily Echo) Thursday Photo Prompt – Glimpsed – #writephoto, with her photo, is a nonet.
Nonet ~ a poem of nine lines and a syllable pattern of 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, with rhyme optional

  1. You are the nonet master! Beautifully done.
    But daughters locked up by fathers or other men to keep them chaste is still an unfortunate and sometimes gruesome reality.
    “Gaol” instead of jail was an interesting word choice.
