Shopping – Shadorma (Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Prompt) ! Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library

Thank you all for your participation and for linking up!

This week  we’re going to  look at stairs again … but these are going up!



When Dante wrote his Divine Comedy, he made Hell, Purgatory and Heaven in different levels or rings.  I think, and this is just an I think, that this was because very often in Italy’s cities, the streets are connected from one level to the next by stairs…so what I want you to do is to look at these stairs and try to imagine where they’d take you…in alternative, choose one of your own photos or art work and write about it!

This week’s prompt is stairs

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 .  You have a week to create you poems so be patient and let the photo inspire you!  Or use your own photograph or art work!

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 because I will be notified that you’ve written the post (not so with Mr. Linky)…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! ;-)

      Great job even the second time around…thanks for adding this lovely metaphor of life’s walk! By the way…I don’t seem to have the first poem here…or were referring to last weeks prompt when you say this is your second attempt? Don’t forget Mr. Linky please.

      Don’t worry…I like the pings because that helps me do the round-ups a whole lot quicker…the linky doesn’t. I’ve approved the link so it’s there now 🙂

        Woo hoo! Thanks!

        Yeah, Linky can be a bit temperamental at times, as can Linkz.
