Author’s Note: This is my submission for Week 6. It is in the ninefold discipline of poetry. At a high level, it is nine syllables per line and nine lines. Three lines are dedicated to the physical, three to the emotional, and three to spiritual. Here’s Ninefold Dragon’s challenge for this week.
Branch by branch I move the dead scrap heap.
Harsh words push my feet and arms to move.
Bad energy aligns my chaos.
Anger rises blinding all logic.
Great ignorance ignites the mind flames,
Burning away all trace of reason.
Soul, submit to ancient Words of Truth!
Mouth, be bound to speak only Life Words!
Follow the Shepherd in deep silence.
