NaPoWriMo Day 7

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.
