B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – Cinquenta – April 25, 2015

Hello everyone!  This is Paloma, greeting you from B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond.

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 “Cincuenta“.


After the success of the Poetweet (introduced by  thotpurge) we thought we’d take the form one step further.  Instead of 140 characters – can you create a poem that has exactly 50 characters?   For your inspiration, perhaps you would like to consider the road image — or, this old advertising card.  [The first card says “Playing sick”.  The second card says, “Who says rats?”

Feel free to write a shadorma and/or cinquenta.  The choice is yours! When you have written your poem(s), please TAG them B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond and MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.

Good luck!

    Crap! (excuse the foul language) I read 50 words, not 50 characters! Wasn’t until I went to read your poem, Paloma, that I realised my mistake! Sorry, sorry, sorry!

      Still that has to be cool too – 50 words. I’ll have to check it out.
      Hopefully sooner than later. Maybe you created a new form? 🙂

        So with some editing I now have a 50 word poem, a Shadorma, and a cincuenta… *grin* You don’t half make a woman work today! 😉

    Aw, I didn’t mean for you to go back and edit – unless it was bothering you personally! Your first poem was great! But… I’m off to read the second now 😉
