Bastet’s Shadorma Photo Prompt and A “Little One” – September 6, 2014

Hello World!  I was out walking the other day when I saw this little guy:

 

scarecrow

scarecrow

funny man
standing on the road
colorful
smiling man
made of straw and scraps of cloth
he scares away the fall

wistful
blissful
peaceful
playful
walking on that wistful blissful day
I went my peaceful and playful  way!

Shadorma is a Spanish 6-line syllabic poem of 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllable lines respectively. Simple as that.

Tyburn is a six line poem consisting of 2, 2, 2, 2, 9, 9 syllables.  The first four lines rhyme and are all descriptive words. The last two lines rhyme and incorporate the first, second, third, and fourth lines as the 5th through 8th syllables.

Once you’ve written your poem, put your link on Mr. Linky and be sure to tag … Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie and Bastet’s Shadorma Prompt!

Ciao, 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! ;-)

    Ooooh! Tyburn’s are challenging poems indeed! This will be fun. Do you know if it’s named after Tyburn in London? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyburn

      You know, I don’t really know if it is or not.

        I wrote one a while back and couldn’t find any background info on it … so was just wondering. Would make sense – it can have a sort of “gallows-speech” feel to it —

        Yeah … I got it first through WDBWPs an then Shadow Poetry … no mention of why it’s called that.

        Hmmm….. I’ll have to do some research on it. Somebody has to know! (Sounds like an Enquirer advert….)

        Well .. it just might be the name of the guy who invented it … anothe obscure poet with a fertile mind.

        And thank goodness for those fertile minds! Gives the muses something to toy with. Which reminds me – as much as we speak of ‘muses’ – got some great photos of statues of muses at the National Gallery this summer. Will have to use one in a prompt so you can see her. 🙂

        Amen … send me one so I can do a Shadorma prompt with it … see what can be done with muses in the flesh or whatever! 😀

        Rats — I almost missed that comment! Will email it to you ASAP. 🙂

    Wonderful poem — truly spirited and spirit-lifting in the changing seasons of time and fortunes.

      Thanks … I hope that means you’ll be joining in Pat 🙂

        Uh no ….. unfortunately I can’t write poetry to form — as soon as I have to consider meter and stanzas and blah blah blah …. my brain has a nuclear meltdown.

      • Bastet
        September 8, 2014

        Know what you mean actually … took me awhile to get the hang of it .. I don’t go into meter or iambs for the same reason. Heaven knows I’ve tried to get the hang of that stuff … but I have learnt how to count syllables due to haiku .. so the shadorma is easy for me … now the Tyburn is a tricky little devil due to the rhyming and because it’s little! Anyway .. I’m happy you enjoyed the post and gave me a chance to chatter a little 🙂 Have a great week!

      • Pat

        Well for someone who has a bit of a tough time with all the techno biz – you certainly achieve great results – so well done!

        Chattering is always a lovely way to get to know people a little better – it was my pleasure and I wish you a wonderful week too 🙂

        Thanks both for the compliment and the blessing 🙂

    Ah something to ponder as I spend the day at the nursing home…little sneak breaks on the swing

      Hmmm … interesting idea.

        I did not get to swing…My stepfather and I had a nice visit with Mom

        That’s better than anything else … happy you enjoyed being with your mother.
