B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – April 30, 2016


Greetings!  This is Paloma.  Welcome to another episode of B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond!

This week’s inspiration comes from a video of the wild ponies at Assateague Island, near Ocean City, Maryland. Actually, they are feral ponies – possibly the survivors of a shipwreck in the 1700s.

For this week you may write a shadorma — a non-rhyming six-line poem in 3/5/3/3/7/5 — or a tilus. A tilus is a non-rhyming, 3-line poem with a syllable count of 6-3-1.

[salt and mud]
wild ponies walking
in long lines
seamed with mud:
straight, the sound of wild hooves
as the path they’ve left

When you’ve written your shadorma, or tilus, or combination, please add your link to the Mr. Linky app. Be sure to visit the other writers too!

Have a great week

    Good to see you back on deck again Jen. Missed you ! I hope you don’t mind but I am not in a horse mood today so will tackle another subject.

    Believe it or not, I have written a tilus, but I need to add some context for it. Found the video, I think. It’s also about wild horses on an island. Hope to post soon.
