A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Today is summer solstice! The first day of summer was an important day in ages gone by … a time of festivity and promise. I don’t know about the rest of the world, but here, the weather has been pretty crazy. We’ve had days where the themometer hit almost 40° c followed by a rain storm which pushed the temps down into the low 20s!
Ah … enough about weather reports. Here are the lovely people who wrote shadorma for us last week!
As I was saying … today is the first day of summer! Here are two photographs that I hope will inspire you to write a shadorma tributing this moment … oh, BTW in the lands down-under, today is the first day of winter. Kind of hard for us to get our minds around the idea so one photo will be wintry the other summery!
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!
Have a great week! Bastet!
