let’s try this treat: write a shadorma ( only 2 verses, just 2) with this word prompt: here it is…..CARNIVAL!..
i bet there will be lots of surprising renditions here; and that’s what I need!... jumbo points for creative imagery, flow of thought and poetic prowess…take this where you want but stay on course..
1.please put your name and title of the contest at the bottom portion
of your poem. .. 2 verses only, no more , no less
2.check syllable/line count, spelling and grammar for accuracy.
The Shadorma is a short Spanish form, of six unrhymed lines. As a syllabic poem, it has a strict number of syllables per line:3 - 5 - 3 - 3 - 7 - 5
THE WORD IS………… CARNIVAL!
Here’s my own example :
rush hours (3)
gathering moments (5)
like whirlwind (3)
in fast beats, (3)
bullet train of time wheezes (7)
forgetting love’s call (5)
two old men
with retirement’s eyes
on a bench,
growing tendrils of old age…
the cosmos grows dim
like curled sleeves wrinkling,
on phonograph's needling tunes
crossing young regions
