A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Hello everyone! Thank you for participating in last week’s challenge! As always, it was fun to read your responses!
For this week Bastet and I would like to introduce a form called the Joseph’s Star. The Joseph’s Star was created by Christina R. Jussaume. It is a non-rhyming 8-line poem with a syllable count of 1/3/5/7/7/5/3/1. Each stanza is center-aligned so that the finished poem is diamond-shaped.
You may join as many stanzas as you wish.
Here is an example of a one-stanza Joseph’s Star:
ten thousand stories
and all heaven is smiling –
gather the stars as you will
into your own tale –
dream a bit –
Or – since this is “Shadorma and Beyond” – you may write a shadorma – or a combination of shadormas and Joseph’s Stars. Again, the shadorma is a non-rhyming 6-line poem with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5.
The tree and stars photo is offered for your inspiration — or you may use whatever inspires you this week.
When you have written your Joseph’s Star, tag it: MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie and BJ’s Shadorma and Beyond. And don’t forget to add your link to Mister Linky.
