The Shadorma* is a simple syllabic verse form created by James Neill Northe that is most effective when written using strong words or phrases.
The Shadorma is:
- a hexastich, a poem in 6 lines although you certainly could choose to write any number of sixains in this syllabic pattern.
- syllabic, 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllables per line.
