A Shardoma

Celebrate

every day of life,

every breath.

Rising sun

kisses blushing earth with bronze—

daily gift of Light.

    Thanks for introducing me to yet another new form of poetry. I came to your blog today looking to see if there was any blogs requiring a post today [like One Stop] and saw this and clicked on it out of curiosity. Then searched a little and ended up at One Stop to read more about it.

    Strange little world we live in sometimes.

    I’ve never heard of this type of poem.
    Fantastic result and i guess rather difficult due to the restrictions of the form.
    I might have a go at one myself.
    Have a great new year. all the best with 2011
