This has come about in a very roundabout way. Its yet another form thats new to me, but one I shall attempt to embrace and do justice.
I was looking for somewhere to post today. I visited Victoria’s blog to see if there was anything that she follows or submits to and found this lttle snippet,
I immediately thought, hmmm, whats this? Upon reading, I find its yet another form of poetry I know nothing about. So I do some research which led me to One Stop Poetry and this archive and its follow up. After reading them both, and some other material, it was time to have a go myself, I just can’t resist the challenge 😉
The challenge in part II was to use either one of two poems to then disect and make into a Shadorma. Well, I did, but didn’t do that. The first poem was an untitled piece from Lovely Annie and seemed to me to be about smoking and the possible repercussions. So I decided to do my own slant on that.
3 years ago I quit smoking. I was hospitalised for 12 days and just thought, if I can go 12 days, then I can go 13, 14, 15, so I did and that was that. Smoke free and all the better for it. So here is my take on that period, using an idea from Annie.
Just one hit,
The craving for toxins strong,
I think I have it right as far as syllable count goes.
