The Earth and its World

Green Hill Near Body of Water

“In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti




on, around, in

a chaotic world

paled moon fears the darkness

howling winds shred the woodland

frightened creatures seek safe havens

angry sun sinks in its own shadows

“There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew.” – Marshall McLuhan

the sun shone brightly its morning smile

welcomed nature’s pre-dawn creatures

soft ballads soothe the woodlands

silver moon pales and yawns

peaceful is the earth

on, around, in





The poem is a Double Reversed Nonet beginning with the unpleasant and ending with calm. The poetry form, Nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, etc… until line nine finishes with one syllable. The reverse is the opposite. It can be on any subject and rhyming is optional.

I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals. My writing and creative endeavors can be found at my blogs, Eugi’s Causerie I and Eugi’s Causerie II, where I have gathered a following of kindred souls who share my passion for writing. I have authored ebooks, “Fanciful Delights” and “Mama, me and Mother Nature”. I am also a published author on Spillwords.
