Poetry Challenge #53

Shadorma Anyone?

The Shadorma is a six-line poem with a certain number of syllables on each line: 3/5/3/3/7/5. It’s said to have originated in Spain. It can be written about any subject, does not need to rhyme, and you can connect many together to write a longer poem.

STRETCH YOURSELF!

Dr. King
used non-violence
to show us
another
way. He had a dream of peace
we still want today.

2
Acceptance
of changing feelings
does not come
easily
for me. I feel the loss of
everything that’s past.

Now it’s your turn!

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
