Day 6 #AtoZChallenge
spring, climb and descend
the weave and warp of nature
an enclosing dream
temple bells, incense,
rich lights, camphor, prayers and peace
.......rest of the poem has been removed to facilitate for future submission. Thank you for visiting.
The second one emerged with the image of a clear temple pond while I was checking on some images for a lotus painting. My intention was to post the shardoma alone but my curiosity sealed the game.
My poems in response to Napowrimo Day 7
Day 7 prompt asks us to choose a syllable-based form either the Shadorma or the Fib. I decided to try both out of curiosity.
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. But now, the syllable count is based off the Fibonacci sequence of 1/1/2/3/5/8. You can link multiple Fibs together into a multi-stanza poem, or even start going backwards after your first six lines, with syllable counts of 8/5/3/2/1/1.
Do let me know your views. Also let me know if the font of the poems work. Is this font fine?

Lovely Deepa. I intend to give Fib a try too. Just did the shadorma this time. Both your poems evoke a sense of calmness.
Such beautifully evocative poems. Fantastically done :).
Lovely poem. And I like the font too. I wish I can do that in wordpress.
I loved the order in chaos of the first poem and the serene calmness of the second one.... I am so far away from trying or experimenting all these types... It's a good learning experience for me. Hopefully someday I can try and experiment. The fonts of the poems add to the charm :)
Thank you Smitha. Yes, you should give Fib a try too. I see that you already have. Just remembered.
Thank you, Aseem.
Thank you, Erlyn and thanks for mentioning about the font. I thought Wordpress has more interesting options.
Thank you so much for your sweet words, Ira. It’s this challenge that has paved way for such experimentation for me, else I wouldn’t have thought of so many variations in one week. Thanks for the feedback on the font.
Lovely poems with hues of sunshine and Serenity!
Absolutely loved reading poems:)
I love the idea of a poem syllable structure based on the Fibonacci series - I hadn't heard of a syllable as opposed to a rhyme structure - apart from Haiku of course. My sister is more the poet...
I'm loving your theme - oh and the typeface is fine although I might push the size up a notch. I will be revisiting all the posts after the madness of trying to complete the novel is over...
Awesome.. makes me want to go back to my poetry days when I used to read a lot of them and try to write few as well.. The art has great power as well.
Very interesting Deepa. Never knew about these formats of poems.
