Lake Garda – Shadorma – April 20, 2014

Lake Garda  (Shadorma)

vacationing
perfume fills the air
sweet kisses
in the night
beneath the moon and starry sky
in early spring they walk

velvet sky
full moon and bright stars
lover’s walk
along the moat
water laps among the boats
in spring at Riva

A shadorma is composed of six non-rhyming lines (sestina or sextet) and the syllable pattern is 3-5-3-3-7-5.  It can have as many stanzas as you like, just as long as each stanza follows the syllable pattern mentioned above.
