Hello World …
This post is dedicated to writing a Shadorma. What is a Shadorma? Shadorma is a Spanish 6-line poem of 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllable lines respectively. Simple as that.
I thought we’d look at the Acrostic form today too. An Acrostic is a poem where the first word of each line forms read down together forms a word …
readied for combat
stood in the castle’s courtyard
awaiting its master
And there it stood
Rigid as an old oak tree
Of manhood from another age
Ready to give battle!
You can use the photo to inspire you to write a poem or choose one of your own. Not interested in either the Shadorma or poetry but you like the photo and feel inspired? No problem … go for it!

I am so sorry! I linked the Blog It Or Lose It poem twice! Can you help me delete one of the links? [embarrassed]
UHM … don’t worry, but I don’t know how to undo a Mr. Linky .. maybe Yves can do that (she has for me in the past) … she’s usually up on the comments, so let’s just wait and see.
Sounds good —
Can’t believe I did that. Ugh.
It’s happened to me whilst putting up more than one post with Mr. Linky … so I wind up with the same one twice … did it last week on Silent Sunday too.
Feel a little better now…
Almost 2 .. Off to bed for me!
Till later – hugs!
Nighy night! Here it’s about breakfast time.
Should have stayed up. No sleep. 😦
Sorry about that .. nothing worse than going to bed and not sleeping … hope you recouped during the day. 😦
Was able to sleep in — and get a nap! So I’m doing better. Hopefully it won’t just continue the cycle though. Was having some respite from the phantom pains but they came back with a vengeance. Ugh.
Oh my ..
