Tiptoeing ‘round the house at its most quiet, everyone asleep during those lonely hours, should have been peaceful, yet it stirred emptiness I have gnawing fears too like everyone else, getting older, the future, to name a few, cramped thoughts that could cripple giving no freedom What does peace mean to me has transformed with age, lately it has been accepting weaknesses, one day make peace with them no longer a foe
This poem follows the Double Ennead form of poetry. Ennead means 9, so Double Ennead here means double 9 or 99. Here’s an explanation below from Saddle Up Saloon: Colleen’s Double Ennead Challenge No.3 and while there, try the challenge too. The challenge is up for one month. For this month’s challenge, make the Double Ennead a rhymed poem. Mine above was an attempt of ababx, but still a bit choppy I think.
The Double Ennead comprises five lines with a syllable count of 6/5/11/6/5, (33 SYLLABLES per stanza) 3 STANZAS EACH = 99 SYLLABLES, NO MORE, NO LESS! Punctuation and rhyme schemes are optional and up to the poet.
