Today’s prompt (which you can read here) asks us to write either a shadorma or a Fib.
The shadorma is a six-line, 26-syllable poem (or a stanza – you can write a poem that is made of multiple shadorma stanzas). The syllable count by line is 3/5/3/3/7/5.
The Fib is a six-line form in which the syllable count is based off the Fibonacci sequence of 1/1/2/3/5/8.
Here’s a funny thing, though. I did this really quickly this evening, and it is only now that I notice I misread the instructions. I followed the pattern of the form, but with words instead of syllables!
Anyway, I quite like it, so I’m posting it even though it’s a bit wrong.
No ideas today.
Mind unmarked. Muslin rolled around
a cardboard tube,
hiding from itself
in its own curves. Catch the edge;
heave! Loosen. Reel out. Uncoil.
