The Shadorma is a Spanish poetic form made up of a stanza of six lines
(sestet) with no set rhyme scheme.
It is a syllabic poem with a meter of 3/5/3/3/7/5.
It can have many stanzas, as long as each follows the meter.
Little is known about this poetic style's origins and history
but it is used by many modern poets today.
This variation of the haiku, which is evident by its syllable pattern,
can be seen in use in many writing venues
swathed in moon's full light
are a tease
with no breeze
Urging motion to delight
Man, with no unease.
Strong winds blow
Force into the sea
then you know
that the show
of tranquility must be
power in escrow.
singly, or much worse
fraudulent calm to the curse
of wrath outside norms.
Can destroy all works
doom for any when gone berserk.
Waves prayer cannot quell.
