Little trin-
Kets, small memories
Of days gone
Days past and
All the possibilities
All that could have been.

I wanted
To run far away,
Not knowing
I was right
Where I should have been until
I had packed up; left.

Now I look
Back at memories
Of the past
Wondering,
Could I have stayed maybe?
Or could I go back?

Is the past
The past or is it
A lesson?
Can we learn
From our mistakes and can we
Choose how to live life?

I have exams I should really study for but no… here I am.
Anyway I think this time the form went a little better than last time 🙂

For those who don’t know a shadorma is a poem with 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllables and as many stanzas as you want.

Shadorma – Fossils

20140601-104343.jpg

In the Alps
The world is still wild,
Rocks jutting
Out like teeth
From a giant, ancient shark
Many rows of spikes.

Rainbows fade,
In the mist, rolling
Down in wisps
From the heights.
The ominous jagged cliffs,
Black, of Mordor loom.

You could still
Imagine beacons
Lighting up
The mountains
Calling for help that won’t come
For none’s at the end.

Surviving
Gnarled and twisted trees,
Parts of snow,
Mist, rain, fog,
“Trespassers, you shall not pass!”
Say they, staring still.

Lost pillars
Still standing, not knowing,
What they’re for
Anymore
So small in the mountains tall
Insignificant.

Glaciers
Imperceptibly
Rolling down,
The human
Is a spark
In the lifetime of this proud,
Giant wilderness.

Awed still now
Of these rocks far gone
I sit here
In wonder
Counting my fingers
For every
Syllable
Until every line is right
And ’till all is said.
