Christmas Shadorma

Posted on

I’d forgotten this Spanish form–remembered, gave it another try. Shadorma is a six-line form of counted syllables, divided as follows: 3/5/3/3/7/5.  Go ahead, you try too–everyone has time for 26 syllables.

Colored lights
tacked along white walls
against night
help darkness
set itself on a new path:
To reflect and glow.
