who could guess – Shadorma

who could guess
it would be a fad
held by Mom
with eyes closed
while swaddled in a blanket
in my first selfie

This is my twenty-ninth shadorma using a photo from my WP Media Library for Eliot Dybden’s Shadorma November (ShaNov) at Along the Interstice. A shadorma has six lines with no rhyme or meter, except for a syllable structure of 3/5/3/3/7/5.
Photo originally used with the poem Butterfly Effect.  Obviously, I did not take this photo.

 

studying – Shadorma

New Holland Fermentation Tanks

studying
chambers of his heart
would reveal
hardening
imposed by her disregard
for his affection

This is my twenty-eighth shadorma using a photo from my WP Media Library for Eliot Dybden’s Shadorma November (ShaNov) at Along the Interstice. A shadorma has six lines with no rhyme or meter, except for a syllable structure of 3/5/3/3/7/5.
This is the second shadorma inspired by this photo. The first was newborn thoughts.

tomorrow’s – Shadorma

Opacity

tomorrow’s
longing for closure
like today’s
will not end
nor will it lessen the loss
grief lays upon us
