This is the third week of the challenge in the year 2017! The following poem is a “ninefold poem.” This is a new style of poem I created last year. It 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.
The mirror to me seems to be cracked
Every flaw and blemish revealed
Yet this is not my beauty defined
Thoughts eternally seem all too dark
As I drift into melancholy
Yet this is not the truth of my mind
With courage I will journey forward
Through gratitude I will find my grace
Accepting divinity within
