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
