Spring is definitely in the air and out for a walk, I came upon this lovely rock garden…hope you find it inspiring!

A shadorma is composed of six non-rhyming lines (sestina or sextet) and the syllable pattern is 3-5-3-3-7-5.  It can have as many stanzas as you like, just as long as each stanza follows the syllable pattern mentioned above (I’ve written an example shadorma and numbered my syllables to show how it’s done for you newbies to poetry).

Just take a look at the photo…and let it speak to your muse…I’m curious to read your shadorma!

Once you’ve written your post tag:  Shadorma and Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, then put your info onto the Mr. Linky app!  If you ping me back, I’ll be able to read your post asap…That’s all there is to it!

See you next week and have fun!  Bastet!


    • Ah…thanks for telling me! Loved how you worked with the shadorma, you did a great job with the imagery dispite the limited words! And thanks for participating
