Writing Prompt
Write a nonet poem. It's a simple format. See the announcement for an example.


Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia and was the last stop on our Borneo trip (two states on Malaysia are on this giant island). I have used "drum" as both the instrument, because the music of this region involves so much percussion, and as a container, since Malaysia is such a melting pot of cultures. The photo is from our hotel window, looking past an incredible super-sized moth.
