A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
This week I want you to imagine a time, when poetry games (in Japan) and story telling were the main passtime in the evenings.
No television, radio or computer just people sitting ’round the fireplace or as we’re in our northern summer, out in the garden sharing tales and poems! Of course maybe we still enjoy this particular type of evening entertainment when we go camping! Tell me about it and join the fun!!!

we choose our master wisely
then begin our evening feat
spider wove a web
of gossamer near the lamp
gnat’s last visit
the bird’s morning visit
emptied the spider’s larder!

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! Bastet
