A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Chatting with a friend .. one thing lead to another and I thought of horse back riders in painting … which lead me to Wassily Kandinsky!
Kandinsky (16 December December] 1866 – 13 December 1944) was a Russian painter and art theorist (my husband has one of his interesting books – Point and Line to Plane) and it’s been attributed to him the painting of the first pure abstract work of art.
So, I’ve decided to use one of his many early paintings where the subject is ladies and horses:
Along with our shadorma I thought we’d also try a Brevette … and brief it is!
The BrevetteThe Brevette, created by Emily Romano, consists of a subject (noun), verb, and object (noun), in this exact order. The verb should show an ongoing action. This is done by spacing out the letters in the verb. There are only three words in the poem, giving it the title Brevette.
Each of the three words may have any number of syllables, but it is desireable that the poem have balance in the choice of these words. Unlike haiku, there are no other rules to follow.
Found at: Shadow Poetry
Our shadorma is created in the following fashion: it’s a 6-line poem of 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllables per lines respectively.
Let me try to create for you an example:
they rode free
the prince and his bride
in the fall
of the year
their wedding vows they exchanged
on his white stallion

You can use the photos 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!
