Embers to Stars ~ nonet

Embers to Stars

On a still night with the light of flames
rising from a bank of embers
beneath slowly settling logs,
we gaze into the sky,
wordless communion
of awed silence.
Skies ablaze
kindle
awe.

I have revised yesterday’s poem as a nonet in response to Day 9 at napowrimo.net, in which we’re asked to write a nonet ~ a poem of nine lines and a syllable count of 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, with rhyme optional.

My first nonet was written in 2015. Go to this link to read my collection.
