A Shadorma or Two

On Ash Wednesday of 2010, I started to write a Shadorma every day. I had just read of them and was fascinated by the form: six lines, 1st line—three syllables; 2nd line—five syllables; 3rd line—three syllables; 4th line—three syllables; 5th line—seven syllables; 6th line—five syllables.

I’ve put three here from that first month of February and I continued to do it throughout the year and even through today. Try writing one yourself and post it here.

February 17

I turned from

ashes on this day

to find new

ritual

of positive dimension

for my soul and life

February 23

slivers fall

from heavy gray clouds

partly ice

partly rain

each one cries “define yourself”

and I cry it too

—–

February 25

I search for

answers in my life

and study

to know more

so I can preach in living

and others can see
