Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s #Poetry Challenge 117 – Poet’s Choice.

Colleen Chesebro is back with her weekly Poetry challenge No. 117 – Poets choice

This week Colleen has introduced us to a new format

“The Shadorma is a poetic form consisting of a six-line stanza (or sestet). Each stanza has a syllable count of three syllables in the first line, five syllables in the second line, three syllables in the third and fourth lines, seven syllables in the fifth line, and five syllables in the sixth line (3/5/3/3/7/5) for a total of 26 syllables.

When writing a Shadorma I would concentrate on a specific subject. The brevity of syllables is perfect for that kind of structure.

A poem may consist of one stanza or an unlimited number of stanzas (a series of shadormas).”

Here is my attempt at a Shadorma… and as it is poet’s choice I have gone with ‘Create’ and ‘Intoxicating’


I hope you will head over and participate in the challenge…There is new submission guidelines to be aware of:
