Soul-Fire – A Shadorma

Twinkle-toed
They dance in moon-glow
Melting to
Honeyed touch
Breaths scatter on starlit winds
Igniting a flame.

Darkness dreams
Hanging on to stars
Soul of night
Burning bright
Flipping blackness to starlight
Heartbeats trace love lines.

But, dearest Lady, coulld you kinda keep the “kinds” to a mere two-volume minimum. It is thee who are very kind and I do not fig-give a whit were the world so to find out!

  2. I adore poets willing to experiment with strict verse poetry and this Shadorma is beautifully written. If you have the time, I encourage you to visit my weekly series “Whittled Words” for highlights on many other forms. Wonderful poem!
