ThomG, moderator of 3ww Wednesday, offers the following words for today's prompt:


Shadorma is a Spanish 6-line syllabic poem of 3/5/3/3/7/5

an unknown
came and went
no knocking
on the proverbial door
last service notice

American Sentence ~ 17 syllables

Opportunity for service thrives while they continue to quarrel.

The Shadorma is quite a delight. The AS is just as fun.

Danny Wise said...

Yeah, spot on both and the watercolor. Love 'em!

Love this new style. I had never heard of it. It is quite refreshing so I'll have to try it. I always like a challenge. Thanks.

Loved both of these, but I think the American Sentence has the edge.

I especially like the finality of the last line "last service notice"-all chances are gone.

Lucy said...

I admit, I've never heard of a Shadorma so thanks for introducing me to a new concept. Really enjoyed the way you used this week's words and I have to wonder how many times that unheard knock has been on our doors...

I really liked the second one, but both are good.
