B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – Free Verse – September 26, 2015

Greetings!

For this week, let’s sample some freedom!

Sometimes the muses need structure; sometimes they need to run free. So for this week, please write a free verse poem of about 10 lines. You may use any rhyme you like — or lack of rhyme. Any line length, any meter, any rhythm, repetition, or any other devices you like. Or – you may use none of these things.

Whatever you write, however – read it aloud to get a better sense of your poem’s feel.

Now for our inspiration:

You may write a shadorma in the place of free verse – or if you’re really inventive a combination of shadorma and free verse.  The shadorma is a non-rhyming 6-line poem with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5. You many also choose whatever inspires you either from this post or use your own original work.

When you have written your post, tag itMindLoveMisery’s Menagerie and B&Ps Shadorma and Beyond.  And don’t forget to add your link to Mister Linky.

Good luck!

        Uh-oh, I had a sneaking feeling things were less than wonderful–I may be slow in getting to the email, just so you know…lots going on…but I’ll get there.

        I haven’t written it yet … sorry …!
        Struggling with the phoenix prompt which I absolutely have to answer. But the words aren’t coming. 😦

        A phoenix prompt?? Hmmm–is it on your blog? No worries about the email, dear heart–we’re not likely to lose each other now–and I have a whole InBox full of “homework assignments”….heading for the shower… Take care of your heart, will you please 🙂

        The phoenix prompt came from Carpe Diem; I’ve been absent for so long that it’s finally being written tonight. Phew!

        Good luck with the homework —
        Hugs!

    I think I wrote a shadoma? With a chance to write free verse?

    I added this prompt to an existing piece which had more than ten lines…
    But I added a shadorma (as a haibun?)

      Can’t wait to see what you’ve done! Interesting using a shadorma ending in place of a haiku in a sort of haibun …
