Here is my first attempt at writing a Shadorma. A Shadorma is a type of short form poetry of Spanish origin, similar to the Japanese Haiku and Tanka.

My heart jumps.
The blood in my veins
runs hotter
than sunlight.
It is your liquor-sweet eyes.
Oh, sweet drunkeness!


  1. I like the last line very much.

    Have you thought of linking to other communal poetry sites, such as Willow's Magpie Tales or One Stop Wednesday? They are both weekly poetry prompt blogs that encourage writing and sharing of it. And it might be a way to help your poetry grow and another way to meet other writers.


  2. I didn't even know such an animal existed!
