This is week six 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:
Slovenly sitting alone at home
Furrowed frown and solitary tears
Disheveled dress betrays the sad man
Thoughts linger on pervasive self-talk
Ruminating and now spiraling
A sense of incoming dread exists
Yet when all the trials are overcome
And my spirit has not come undone
I will rise again and be reborn
