Seasonal Impressionism

brush of mist and dew
dissolves fields
the landscape
becomes a swirling maelstrom
trees are beaching whales

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Fussy Little Forms: Shadorma

This week Marian is hosting the weekend mini-challenge; she says she was thinking about how she’s been a bit stuck lately, not very productive, finding it challenging to write for many reasons. She says that trying to write in tight verse or constrained lines can help get her going when she’s stuck. So, she’s inviting us to join her in a monthly exercise focused on short and/or fussy form poems.

We’re starting off easy with a shadorma: a six-line poem (or series of six-line stanzas); a syllable count by line of 3-5-3-3-7-5; and it’s not rhymed.
