This is the sixth week of the challenge in the year 2017! The following poem is a “ninefold poem.” This is a 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.
Her hands massaged oils into my back
Pulling out pain with every touch
The warmth of which provided comfort
My thoughts lingered on deserving her
Yet the song of her voice soothed and quelled
And I began to understand peace
My heart secretly soared above us
Knowing our love was nurtured deeply
An answer to each other’s prayers
