Shadorma

Posted on

According to Robert Lee Brewer, on his wonderful poetry blog, Poetic Asides, Shadorma is a Spanish syllabic poetry form, structured in 6 lines of syllables like this: 3/5/3/3/7/5. You can link sets of 6 lines together, he says.  Here’s my first attempt:

Shadorma

Sounds like a
warrior princess
on the side
of good poems.
Soldiers, peasants, conquered foes
listen as she reads.

Their faces
open like windows
long shuttered
as each poem
echoes off her pink armor.
Another war, won.
