Poetry Challenge Week #7 – Ninefold Style

This is week seven 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:

Lake Superior Memories

Cool clear water reflects azure sky
A rocky beach massages my seat
And a copper sun hangs low at dusk

Old memories coalesce within
Regarding youth’s regrets, fears, and doubts
And when life was filled with innocence

Both pain and joy urge transformation
Remembered sins make way for virtues
A sainthood born from the sinner’s womb

Previous week’s entries:

Melinda Kucsera and Annie
