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:
O daughter, pearlescent in beauty
Shining your light upon mother’s clan
Your direction etched upon the stone
Honesty — greatest of your virtues
The foundation of your loyalty
And it is tethered to your friendships
Be not dismayed by your anxious heart
Your compassion has always been true
And your soul forever uplifts me
