Farm girl

Day 9 prompt: on a farm

(a nonnet) 

As Dad’s tractor hums in the cornfield

Last born, too green to tend the crops,

Sprawls out under maple shade

Grazing on borrowed books

Cultivating dreams

Cats chase crickets

She daydreams



[A nonnet has nine lines – the first with nine syllables, the second eight, and so on until the final line has just one syllable. The meter should be iambic; I’m not sure I got that quite right here … but I’m pleased with the imagery anyway.]
