Poem: Shadorma – “Beauty Reveals All” 

Thanks to The Daily Post for the prompt word Sing. Today’s poem will be a Shadorma. A Shadorma poem is a sestet with no set rhymes. But there is a syllable pattern of 3/5/3/3/7/5 in each sestet. Thank you to Manan and Rosema for information on this type of poetry. Check-out their Shadormas in their links provided.




Only when,

You see the proof will —

You believe.

You do not–

Believe inside; with your heart,

You’ve no vision there.


I sing about, 

A day when I will —


Reveal all.

Maybe the day will never —

Come; maybe you’ll grow up.


You can be —

Childlike and innocent, 

Be young at —

Heart and laugh, 

But you’ve a complicated–

Way of showing youth.


You’re not young, 

You’re older then mountains, 


You’ve gone soft, 

There’s no back bone in your body, 

Perhaps, you’re a snake.

But maybe, 

This is only rage —

Passed down from, 

All the years, 

I’ve thought, what to sing,

Attractive face hides.


Don’t you know, 

It’s what I’ve learned from —

You and them.

A handsome —

Face, can mask, multitude of —

Sins; dishonesty.


I’m not sure, 

Who I will meet one —

Day; the liar? 

Or a man, 

Learn-ed from, mistakes in life; 

Beauty sings, reveals.

    You’ve no vision there.
    . . .
    This is only rage —

    Passed down . . .

    As a reader, these parts especially grab me (of course, it takes all of the rest as well). These words speak to nether feelings and intents–maybe chosen, maybe legacy.

      Thanks Christopher. Sometimes things in the past sneak up. Sometimes people you were happy to see gone too 🙂
