Hope – A Shadorma

this new day

as morning dew perch

on perky

blades of grass

reflecting colors of dawn –

I embrace the day

The Shadorma consists of a six-line stanza (or sestet). Each stanza is written as 3-5-3-3-7-5 for a total of 26 syllables with no set rhyme scheme. When writing a Shadorma, I would concentrate on a specific subject. Shadorma need a title.

For Tanka Tuesday with Colleen where we are using the specific form- Shadorma. To read or participate go here

Upheaval – Quadrille

Mass upheaval

A new madness on the march

intent on a deadly swath across the land.

Flexing power, thought long gone.

Terror now reins

unsettling time and space

Stuffing all through the eyes of this unforgiving storm

I wait, with tentative hopes for spring

A Rainbow

wp-1591811684668.jpgthis cloud lurking overhead
has claimed me
it snuggles in
displacing the thread of hope
I’ve been holding fast to
it flits in the breeze of the blues
swishing through my fingers
at every grasp

I force myself into the garden
it looks thirsty
I turn on the garden hose
and there through the fine sprays
a rainbow

a lawyer / pastor’s
theft of offerings and souls –
double criminal
an ongoing breach of faith
bereft, her search continues
