The Shadorma consists of a six-line stanza (or sestet). Each stanza is written as 3-5-3-3-7-5 for a total of 26 syllables with no set rhyme scheme. When writing a Shadorma, I would concentrate on a specific subject. Shadorma need a title.
This is a lovely form to write. There is no set rhyme scheme, but I’ve read some great shadorma poetry featuring end rhymes. Have fun and be creative.
Pinch me, please.
This nightmare must end.
Stalks the sane.
Brainwashed masses rule our fate
Lest we awaken.

So, so true! We all need to wake up and pay attention!
Clarity is definitely needed.
Absolutely! Thanks. 😊
