Bastet’s Shadorma Photo Prompt # 2

Hello World!

It’s Saturday, Shadorma day!  First of all I’d like to thank all those who tried out this form and came up with some really beautiful poems inspired by last weeks photo.

The participants were:

Please drop by if you haven’t already done so to have a look at these great attempts at writing a shadorma!

Rock Garden

green warmth greets my soul (5)

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!

About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)
