A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Hello everyone! This is Jen again, greeting you from BJ’s Shadorma & Beyond. Thank you for participating in last week’s challenge! It’s always a treat to read your responses.
For this week you have the choice of writing a shadorma (a non-rhyming six-line poem in 3/5/3/3/7/5), or a cinquain.
A cinquain is a short, usually unrhymed five-line poem developed by Adelaide Crapsey. It has a syllable count of 2/4/6/8/2, and it is similar to the elfje in that each line has a very specific role, as follows:
Line 1: Noun
Line 2: Description of Noun
Line 3: Action
Line 4: Feeling or Effect
Line 5: Synonym of the initial noun.
Here is one example from Shadow Poetry:
a crooked stance
in the hot desert sun –
dust in his face, he limps towards
(c) Deborah P Kolodji
Feel free to write a shadorma, a cinquain, or a combination of linked shadormas and cinquains. The choice is yours! When you have written your poem(s), please TAG them BJ’s Shadorma & Beyond and MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.
