This is week two of the challenge! The following poem is a “ninefold poem.” This is a new style of poem that is defined by having three stanzas each with three lines and nine syllables. The first stanza must represent the aspect of body; it can be visceral and evoke the five senses. The second stanza must represent the aspect of mind; it can be about thoughts and perceptions. The final stanza must represent the aspect of spirit;it should evoke emotion or some concept of the supernatural realm.
If you accept the challenge please link back to my page so that credit can be given for the origin of the poem style.
Pools of the Mind by Morgan was submitted last week and I look forward to seeing more submissions.
My submission this week:
Lying in bed in gentle caress
Arms wrapped together as only One
Lips pressed softly together in time
Focused thought absent to lovers’ call
Memory drifts to long days of bliss
Perception lingers only on her
The anima joins the mated souls
Tides of the Heart wax without waning
Thought succumbs to touch succumbs to soul
