B&P Shadorma & Beyond – November 26, 2016

Hello Folks!

I thought that this week we’d play around with the acrostic form again.  What is an acrostic?  It’s a poem where the first letter of every stanza spells out the title of the poem, some poets go as far to make the first and last letter of the poem spell out the title, how adventurous are you.

Back in October 2, 2014 I wrote a story in shadorma (which is written with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5 or series of the same) and  acrostic form:

 

Before the Battle Began

good king stood
admiring his knights
tall and bright
in the night
before the battle began.

and he thought:
“I reign in God’s name
and these souls
these servants
are mine to use as I choose.”
before the battle began.

the crows flew
over the battle field
awaiting
the ending
of man’s folly to conclude
without platitudes.

Brave were the knights
Ere the battle began
Forthright and true
On their horses so smart
Ready for combat
Eager to fight

The king
Honored and
Elegant

Bowed to his men
And hailed
Them smiling
Thinking of victory
Loving his power
Ere the battle began

But the corpses soon lay
Evilly deformed
Gone was the joy
And
Nothing was gained.

Now for some inspiration, a picture:

About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)
