A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Hello Folks … yes I’m introducing a whole new show for the Shadorma … the Shadorma Summation. Talking with one of our regular contributors about one of her lovely poems (Mooning Mayhem (multi prompts 9.26 s) over at Jules Longer Strands of Gems we realized that calling the form she’d used a haibun just wasn’t a correct appellation for the poem … it is a lovely Free Verse poem with a Shadorma concluding stanza … similar to a haibun but it has nothing to do with mixing prose and haiku (which is a haibun of course). One thing lead to another and we came up with this name Shadorma Summation for Jules’ form … and then she wrote this lovely poem and has given me permission to use it to illustrate her form:
the weighted bulb in the sky sank
and the birds were drawn like moths to a flame
it was the middle of summer
we rode our bikes to the park pavilion
we imagined the gathered peace
was a portal into another fantastical world
where for us the warm air on our skin
would be relieved by the salt seasoned ocean
where we could float briefly before
sinking to the depths of Atlantis and become
naturalized citizens accepted for who
we were and allowed to be what we wanted
then the sun set and we woke up
pedaled in silence back to our homes and night dreams…
we willingly rode
the powerful energy
of pure radiance
So today I thought we’d take our lowly Shadorma to a different level and introduce this whole new form. What we’ll do is write a Free Verse poem about an experience we’ve had and then sum it up with a Shadorma like Jules did above. I hope you enjoy this idea as much as I do. And now for some inspiration:
Of course this may be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to use one of your own pieces of artwork or photography … feel free to do so!
Once you’ve written your Shadorma Summation or simple Shadorma please remember to link up here to our Mr. Linky app and tag: B&P Shadorma & Beyond as well as Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.
Have a great week … and don’t forget … OctPoWriMo has begun … a great opportunity for us all to meet up with friends and new acquaintances to compare our poetry for a whole month! Ciao Bastet!
