A “ninefold poem” has three stanzas each with three lines and nine syllables. The first stanza represents the aspect of body; it can be visceral and evoke the five senses. The second stanza represents the aspect of mind; it can be about thoughts and perceptions. The final stanza represents the aspect of spirit; it should evoke emotion or some concept of the supernatural realm.

Crystal truth, peering into baby blues,
Eyes see through my core, into broken soul.
Looking at me far within, sapphire sees.
There’s a name for people attracted,
As we are to each other, attached —
Hearts bleed intellectually bound.
Beyond our heads and hearts connected,
To our cores, our spiritually sound souls,
Knowing before God, we’re blessed be.
