NOTE: I initially wrote this poem (linked here) in Nonet form earlier today. As I was posting it, I wondered if it would work better as a Fibonacci, with the rise from small lines to the longer line in the middle and then descending back down to the one syllable lines. I think I like the Nonet better. Having eight fewer syllables makes the poem a bit tighter and, after writing this one, I like the look of only having the dwindling line length.
