Bastet’s Shadorma Photo Prompt – July 19, 2014

Hello Folks —

I’m writing to you today from my netbook with an improvised usb keyboard that’s driving me mad … and worse, I’m late!

First of all I’d like to thank all of you who participated in last weeks prompt, what a beautiful job!

Nos once again I’m falling back on Jen for a photo … I have not a one on my netbook, but she generously offered me a few -like the one  we saw last week!


Is that not beautifully suggestive?

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.

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!

Thanks for dropping by – 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! ;-)

      I found it! One wonder’s always what’s behind an inviting peep hole … and sometimes as you say, it’s the peep hole which is more interesting than the view spied! An interesting take on the prompt.

        Thanks! 🙂
        And it *was* kind of eye-shaped too….. like it was *asking* us to peep!
        Shame about the cranky maintenance guy. Hmph.

        True about the cranky guy … but the photo is cool and inspirational!

        I thought so … Course, it was also fun to be a bit negative too – kind of like being disappointed after seeing the Wizard of Oz behind his curtain. 😉

        Not a badidea … hadn’t thought about that scene, it was one of his more inspired moments .. funny how our imagination can create a wonderful world in contrast to reality! 🙂
