This started out as a shadorma, but I reworked the first couple of stanzas, which led to what I now have.
The parts of the movie I saw before falling asleep because it was late and I was tired (a poem)
It is a new month, meaning time to come up with a new challenge. After looking at a few different things, I settled upon the shadorma, a six-line form with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5. My initial effort using this form is an ekphrastic poem, inspired by the Richard Lester version of The Three Musketeers.
Blindness (a poem)
Watching a Japanese drama on Netflix…
Lost with the dream (a poem)
A cross of sorts between last night’s dreams and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind… (Note to self: think of better title for this one.)
Time, love, and money (a poem)
With National Poetry Writing Month ended, and a new month begun, it’s time for a new challenge. After looking at a few possibilities, I have decided to give verbless poems a shot. Yup—poems with no verbs. Here is my first entry:
The truth about sci-fi aliens (A poem)
A pantoum I wrote while watching Farscape and contemplating depictions of alien lifeforms in sci-fi…
A long-awaited truth (A poem)
Back to the epistles again, after a short break.
Our first date was on Valentine’s Day (A poem)
Back to the epistles again.
That’s what Xmas means to me (A poem)
Watching movies on Xmas eve…
The brandy chronicles (a sequel) (A poem)
Not much writing these last couple of days. I feel I have been repeating myself a bit too much lately…
