Out of the box

Wishing to alter my life, break free
and finish the tame everyday,
almost longing for the loss,
I moved my family
to Arizona,
bearing boxes,
transported
by pure
zeal.

(a Nonet)

  1. Oh, boy! I like the syllable count and line count in this poem. A nonet – I looked it up. We might have to add this to our challenge. What fun! ❤
