This post is dedicated to writing a Shadorma.  What is a Shadorma?  Shadorma is a Spanish 6-line poem of 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllable lines respectively.  Simple as that.

I thought we’d look at the Acrostic form today too.  An Acrostic is a poem where the first word of each line forms read down together forms a word …

Ghost Armor

Old armor
readied for combat
rigidly
somberly
stood in the castle’s courtyard
awaiting its master

And there it stood
Rigid as an old oak tree
Melancholic mystery
Of manhood from another age
Ready to give battle!

You can use the photo to inspire you to write a poem or choose one of your own.  Not interested in either the Shadorma or poetry but you like the photo and feel inspired?  No problem … go for it!

What The Tree Heard

A little birdie told me
A little bird tweets
Not so much a homing pigeon
Not the way that birdie cheats

A little birdie flitting
A little bird it’s no surprise
So many different nests her habitat
She has to keep two separate lives

A little birdie, not so much
A big ass bird that’s rather chunky
If reality were required plumage
Birdie’s just a Flying Monkey

Narcissistic Mother Flying Monkeys Gail Meyers

Why?? Writing…

The king is dead, the joker said
Atlas shrugged and shook the floor
Poe is shouting off with her head!
The Red Queen says nevermore

Nights in white satin
Kiss my Cheshire grin
This is what happens
When I let you in

The magic in the mushrooms
Makes me laugh until I puke
My tears are blood and mascara
Isn’t that a tragic fluke?

Petites Pensées

The problem with today’s society is that we have the ability to fling whatever garbage we want, whenever we want and with zero regard for the implications.

Even to ourselves.

Compound that with; we can fling it at the push of a button, or a couple of keystrokes.

You can’t expend effort in your need for immediate gratification of the desire for revenge and be surprised at the outcome.

There are countless opportunities to strike out at someone. Some might be justified. Most are not. Choose your words wisely.

Your anger will dissipate. The wound your angry words leave will not.
