Very good. We live our live positively, knowing there are stumbling blocks, too. But, I like your last lines the best because we can't live in fear of the unknown. Sometimes people overlook the good things and dwell on the no-so-good things. Marilyn

I love what you are saying! A nonet is tricky (at least for me), but you managed to get past the syllable requirements without losing the beauty of your poem. Good advice, too!

    Yeah, you get a lot of pieces which have been wrangled into the format to meet the count. They are hard. G

You're delving into the poetry side, my friend. I think this is an interesting form, and you made good use of it here, that spiraling in effect and then the focal point on that all important word, "Love". I liked that image of tip toeing through the tulips, avoiding the pitfalls, the pains of life. But then you have that sense that you have to dip your toes in the water, you have to take that chance to love. estory

    lol, it's funny that folk here know me as a prose writer. I never wrote a story until I joined here. I only wrote poetry, nor I do so rarely. I like to throw one out now & again. G

A wonderful nonet offering for the contest -- love how you've taken all that sage advice we used to get from our grandmothers and shaped the words into this beautiful format....your conclusion with the simple word of love allows the rest of it to linger after the reading...great job! :) ;) I would only suggest, perhaps, removing some of the commas/periods at the end of lines...not really necessary in such a limited format as the 'formatting' and 'beginning capitalizatioon' itself does the 'pausing' and too many marks distracts from the beauty of the message -- feel free to ignore as poetry is more of a personal nature. :) :) Thanx for sharing and best of luck in the contest! :) Yvette :)

Life is precious that's for sure, noone is promised tomorrow. But you're right if we live to causious we will miss out on all the fun. The poem is well-written interesting, thought-provoking, great job.

Great advice and a superb entry for the Nonet poetry contest. This poem is fluid and easy to read. I find that very difficult to accomplish with the Nonet style, but you seem to have mastered the art!

reply by the author on 28-Jan-2019
    Yeah, sometimes they can be quite disjointed. I find with a lot of the structural forms it feels as if words have been wrangled to fit rather than flow properly. All the best GMG

Good luck in the Nonet Poetry contest. I enjoyed the format of this as well as the topic. It was rather profound to address and acknowledge life and what can happen yet at the same time offer advise. Well done.
