Pools of the Mind


Breaths Sighing Softly, Heartbeat Lilting;

Window to the Soul closed to darkness,

Palms Open to Caress the Heavens.


These spiraling Contemplations Pause;

Thoughts Lingering o’er Sweet Subtleties,

Dreams take Flight in Deep Pools of the Mind.


Perception Soaring through the Unknown;

Demesne of Starlit Kissed Energy,

Transcend the Borders of Time and Place.



This poem was Inspired and written in response to a challenge issued by NineFoldDragon on his blog:  https://ninefolddragon.wordpress.com/2016/01/22/poetry-challenge-ninefold-style

It is a Ninefold poem, 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.

I encourage you to challenge your Imagination and accept his challenge as well 🙂
