Use the photograph to stimulate your muse, or if you’re an artist or photographer choose one of your own works to help you write a shadorma.


Just o add to the fun I thought I’d zest the shadorma with another micropoem as an “intermezzo” if you’d like to try it out.

But before I do that remember that 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!

This week’s extra is an interesting little shape poem called a laturne poem … the shape a Japanese lantern!  It’s very simple indeed it has 5 lines. The syllable count is 1-2-3-4-1.  Here’s an example:

on the path
up to heaven

Cute n’est pas?

Have a nice week!  Bastet!
