Carpe Diem’s Little Ones *Shadorma*

Today our Carpe Diem host Chèvrefeuille has introduced “Shadorma” – a poetry form from Spain. Shadorma consists of a six-line stanza (or sestet), written in 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllable form.There can be one stanza or an unlimited number of them (a series of shadormas) in a poem.

I decided to give it a try:

* * *
of ending summer
last tango
still echoes
between broken bar chair legs
burnt copper sunrise

* * *

    what a wild dance that must have been

    i hope only the chair’s legs were broken

    that image is so startling

    the music – those guys are monsters
