Season End – A Nonet

Season End

Broken shadows across the cracked ground
Sun slipping lower in the sky
as each day does come and go
Shorter days, longer nights
until equinox
Summer lets go
for Autumn
to be
here

Laura is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
and has prompted us with September and
the changing of seasons.  There are two
prompts offered.  This one is a Nonet.

For those who like a syllabic challenge, I invite you to write a NONET – a nine line poem that begins with 9 syllables, descending line by line to 1 syllable.
Select ONE of these 9 syllable lines as your opener (or more if you wish to write several nonets)

1. It seems as though you are still summer (cite Merwin)
2. Broken shadows across the cracked ground (cite Merwin)
3. The earthed lightning of a flock of swans (cite Heaney)
4. One side is wild with foam and glitter (cite Heaney)

I chose #2
