Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge- Clarity Awakens

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.

Clarity Awakens

Pinch me, please.
This nightmare must end.
Clarity
Stalks the sane.
Brainwashed masses rule our fate
Lest we awaken.
