Daily Prompt: Pressure (Nonet)

Do you thrive under pressure or crumble at the thought of it? Does your best stuff surface as the deadline approaches or do you need to iterate, day after day to achieve something you’re proud of? Tell us how you work best.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PRESSURE.


Inspiration does not come to me
till that final minute before
everything goes to hell and
panic sets in, digs in,
blooms where there was once
nothing but din,
till the light

*A nonet is a nine line poem. The first line containing nine syllables, the next line has eight syllables, the next line has seven syllables. That continues until the last line (the ninth line) which has one syllable. Nonets can be written about any subject. Rhyming is optional.

  1. YOU.
    I am usually the strong one.
    The weight of it all is too much.
    I send half of it to you.
    I hate feeling helpless.
    You have been my strength.
    I ask too much.
    You are here.
    With love.


    You have been my strength through all of this with my mom and oh so many things. I don’t know what I would have done without you. Thank you is just so inadequate.
