Sharp: A Shadorma*

tongue as sharp as sword.
Spit slashing
strong words of
life, death, destruction and hope.
Please use it wisely.

The Shadorma is a simple syllabic verse form Theated 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.
  • Unrhymed.
