Yoga Shadorma

Posted on

Shadorma is a poetic form, possibly Spanish in origin, which is built on a syllabic line count: 3/5/3/7/5
Warning: In the right mood, it’s as addictive as rhyme!

We need rhyme.
Sometimes an ocean
of vowels
can form a chain reaction
a trail to follow

from stanza
to stanza, laughing
at how far
we can travel together
rising from old selves

looking back
at where we began
Twist into
summer’s Sanskrit asana—
a group tree, in words

Contagious
describes what those rhymes
awakened
Distinct as snake’s skin, we built
a poem together
