Dusk


flurry of tweets in trees

evening sky awash in dusk

songs of praise – days end

Poetry challenge #17: Shadorma

This week I am joining Jane Dougherty over at janedougherty.wordpress.com in composing a shadorma (my first). These are the guidelines for the poem _

The prompt is the photo above and Jane writes:

“It’s trees, and there’s an atmospheric picture to inspire you. To refresh the memory, a shadorma is a six line stanza (or a whole string of them if you feel like it) in a syllable pattern of 3.5.3.3.7.5.”

stark bare limbs
in ocean of fog
stand in still
surrender
water molecules afloat
paints an impression

in the space between the trees
only emptiness
without emptiness no forest

without forest no clean air
It’s a matter of life’s breath
