Greetings, friends of MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie!
For this week we will reinterpret another existing poem as a shadorma. This poem has haunted me for years and I’ve debated sharing it here for several months.
A shadorma is, of course, written with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5. It can be one stanza or several – so long as each stanza follows 3/5/3/3/7/5.
Today’s poem is “Traveling Through the Dark” by William E. Stafford:
dead on the edge of the Wilson River road.
You may choose to write about this poem … the painting … or perhaps a time when you were faced with an ugly choice to make.
After you’ve written your Shadorma post it on your own blog. Tag it B&Ps Shadorma and Beyond and MindLoveMisery’sMenagerie, then link it here so we can all read and enjoy your work. Don’t forget to visit and comment on other blogs!
See you again in two weeks!
