B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – June 27, 2015

Hello folks!

Paloma and I are really scratching our heads trying to scare up some new poetry forms for you to try out.  This week, I went on a hunt for some new invented form and came upon a site called: PMO or Poetic Magnum Opus … and went to their page called (what else) Invented Forms from Poetry Styles.   And I’m very grateful for their efforts!

"Colour Wheel!!" This is Cath's latest painting. She started it during her Residency at Nature in Art. Cath designed it to showcase just how many colours invertebrates come in, one for every colour of the rainbow!!... Mounted limited editon print 16"x 20" £35.00, plus P&P. Unmounted print £25.00, plus P&P. To purchase, email Cath on cathhodsman@talktalk.net or ring on 01453 884359.

The form I’ve chosen for us today is called: The American 767 and it was created by  Dennis L. Dean.

Here it is for you:

The American 767 is:

  • a tristich, a poem in 3 lines. (Cool thing to know!)
  • syllabic, 7-6-7 syllables per line.
  • unrhymed.
  • written with the name of a “bug” in it.

Queen Bee by Judi Van Gorder

Early Spring the Bumblebee
buzzes round and about,
her preference blue blossoms.

Something tells me that the inventor of this form is a haiku poet of sorts not to mention (which I’m doing anyway) a fan of Kobayashi Issa!

Here is my effort:

walking in the wooded shade
a line of ants marched past
with the spoils from a picnic

Not one of my strongest poems I’ll admit … so maybe with inspiration:

And if insects aren’t your thing … perhaps you’d like to write a Shadorma (A non-rhyming, six line poem (sestina) with the following syllable count: 3/5/3/3/7/5.) about nature!

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.

And do have fun!  Ciao, Bastet


About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

    Hotel where I’m at is upgrading the net. And it’s not quite to my floor yet.
    So I’m making do with limited time and space.
    Which for being on vacation could be a good thing 😉

      I do so understand your plight. Actually just catching up after having been away again with no internet at all. But as you say, if one’s on vacation … Thanks for participating notwithstanding all the difficulties …

        No problem … I’ve been slogging away trying to catch up on my blog reading all day and I’m about fagged … so I won’t be reading the B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond today.

        June 28, 2015

        We must make time for replenishing rest, eh?

        As I did … the next time though that someone tells me that blogging is a lazy person’s pass-time, I’ll zap them with a lightning bolt 😉

        June 29, 2015
