    1. This is the first time I’ve tried this form and I spent so much time counting and recounting syllables. It was worth it though to write a poem in honor of my husband’s elderly aunt who calls frequently out of loneliness. It’s heartbreaking on so many levels. Thank you for your kind words.

  1. I agree with gmazul. This is a heart-wrenching nonet – well done! I recently began supporting seniors through writing and this year has been particularly challenging for them around connecting and feeling, connected. Thanks for this poem!
