Monday Poetry Stretch - Shadorma

The shadorma is a Spanis poetic form consisting of six lines (a sestet) written in syllabic form. The syllable count is 3/5/3/3/7/5. A shadorma may consist of one stanza, or an unlimited number of stanzas.

That's it! Easy-peasy, right? I hope you'll join me this week in writing a shadorma. Please share a link to your poem or the poem itself in the comments.

  1. WAVES
    Racing to
    rippling waves that look
    like rumpled
    clothes in need
    of ironing, each billow
    smooths my troubled soul.

  2. Midnight, I’m
    looking for chocolate—
    the perfect
    poem is made
    of chocolate in a silver
    wrapper of starlight.
