By Joseph Hesch
Before dusk
feathered grayfriars
chirp vespers
in the pines
behind furrowed red-brick crops
in suburban fields.

This bit of verse is in a form called a Spanish form called Shadorma.  It was written in response to One Stop Potery’s Form Monday prompt. The form requires six lines with a syllable count of 3-5-3-3-7-5.

  1. Paints with words indeed…your canvass is lovely Joe! Again, that moment captured in still shot for all of us to enjoy. Thank you! (and for your comment as well…seems we were posting pretty close! Great minds)

  2. I've just come across this new form of poetry at steven's Golden Fish blog. I like your poetry and now the two of you have piqued my interest. I think I'll try one, too. Thanks!
