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.
Please follow these additional brief rules:
1. Add “ninefold” as a tag.
2. Link back to the challenge
3. I’ll link you in next week’s challenge.
My entry this week:
Ancient stars blanket my gazing eyes
Green-hued flames flicker in the heavens
Shadowed forest cuts through the skyline
Words cannot describe the dark beauty
perceived in the star gazer’s bright mind
while time now stands eternally still.
Spirit soars through the borealis
equanimity with the divine
A moment’s peace and the soul restored
