Poetry Challenge 2017 #7 – Ninefold Style

This is the seventh 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.


Blanketed above in the night sky
Like diamonds piercing the veil of black
Starlit is the path I now follow

At the cosmic vast I find wonder
Like a child I travel between them
Imagining life among the stars

My ascendant journey euphoric
Heart soaring beyond the speed of light
Heaven found along the starlit path

    I linked a poem “Morning” with a cat metaphor for the body, waking from dreams for the mind, and a weaving with the grace of daily routines for the spirit.
