Having gotten stuck this weekend, I'm trying some experiments to get moving again. This one comes from a prompt in @headfirstonly's Twitch stream, to write a lyric in nonet form: starting with nine syllables, with each line successively one syllable shorter. The form suggested a subject. I guess this counts for the autumn skirmish prompt, belatedly.
The composition started with the bass part. The E string on my Ashbory has been getting dull (and I'm waiting for a replacement by mail) so I wanted to concentrate on the higher strings. I use a different type of string, Thundergut, for the G, and liked playing with that timbre. Added vocals and piano.
Butterflies in late-summer sunshine
Contemplating south migration
Ripple like black raspberry
Sweetening the noon sky
Days getting shorter
