Carnival

“Shadorma”

~Carnival~

A glimmer
of turquoise catches
my eyes’ gaze
from sequins
which adorn a mask set on
a picturesque face.

Instantly
I am drawn to her.
Streets alive,
carnival.
But I see only her face
beauty not masked.


Written by Theresa Taylor
For Nette Onclaud’s “Share a Shadorma” contest with topic: carnival.

    Thanks much. I am not sure why my poem ended up this way. I was lying in bed thinking about the theme of carnival, and all I could think about was magenta sequins and turquoise feathers on a mask, but then with the restraints of the syllables of a shadorma this developed.
