Day 6 #AtoZChallenge
spring, climb and descend
the weave and warp of nature
an enclosing dream
my past and present
my future, a well-knit cloth
temple bells, incense,
rich lights, camphor, prayers and peace
serenity pervades amid
chanting mantras rise
i bow light
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?
