This week is the poet’s choice and I decided to try a new form. I picked Shardoma which is 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllables and no rhyming. I had three to pick from, one dealt with a medical procedure, another anxiety, but I ended up with a similar theme as last week.
THE EMPTY PROMISE
heavy drought heat
dries & withers
saps the forest’s searching soul
for the rain goddess.
