A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Hello there and sorry I’m late this morning.
As I was laying in bed wondering about what we could write, I began to think about change. Change can be very many things from summer fashions to the march of the seasons. Change is part of everything living or dead – animate or inanimate. Many of us have problems with change – we don’t like it and we want everything to remain fixed — which of course creates a lot of unease.
So I thought we’d write about change but in what form or genre? In relation to which aspect of change should we write? Shall we be serious or humorous, philosophical or scientific.
For a moment let’s look at how a zen monk and haiku master writes about change:
The world is a dewdrop
And yet, and yet …
From time immemorabile mankind has been contemplating the world and therefore change – the kyo (emptiness) and the jitsu (fullness) in their never-ending march together yet separated. The world is a dewdrop … and yet –
I would like to you write your reflections about change either by using a Choka (a Choka is formed by writing 5/7 syllable couplets and you end the poem with an extra seven-syllable line. The poet may write as many couplets as he or she desires.) or a Shadorma (a non-rhyming six-line poem of 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllables) or perhaps a Shadorma variation. And choose whichever aspect of change interests you at this moment.
Once you’ve written your piece tag B&P Shadorma and Beyond and Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie then link to our linking app below (if you add our address to your post you will automatically show up in our comments.)
Have a great week, Bastet.
