2010 NaPoWriMo Day 5

Back in January I was introduced to the “shadorma”  form. This poetry form is six lines, unrhymed with a 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllable count for the lines.

Today’s prompt  at Poetic Asides, is to write a poem with TMI (too much information).  It reminded me of last summer.  I was at the coast with my book club and we were out to dinner.  The shadorma just felt like a good form for this poem.

    Love it. I especially like that spills, shouts, threats are on the same line… it’s full of feeling and movement
