The Stain of Spain Was Henry’s Bane ~ a Shadorma

Jousting field

Diane de Poitiers

Holds her breath

Henry falls

One small splinter from a lance

Changes history

Mabon
Exhausted God
Craving his Goddess’ arms
Lays in her autumnal splendour
Thankful

It’s particularly fitting that my eldest child’s birthday falls on Mabon this year. May yours be filled with joy.

Blessed be

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!

Once you’ve written your post, put your link on…

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
