Bastet’s Shadorma Photo Prompt # 2 – Grotto


A shadorma is composed of six non-rhyming lines (sestina or sextet) and the syllable pattern is 3-5-3-3-7-5.   


Ancient made grotto



Yellow flowers highlighted

A lasting landmark.



A past tribute



Moments now long forgotten

I pause to recall.

    Wonderfully penned… No problem with not posting the photo, I read you had trouble downloading the photo and can’t imagine why, but you might just do a copy and paste in the future.

  4. I cannot see the photo and the first thing that sprung to mind, is your mums graveside, poignant Shadorma my friend.

  5. Peak, which I did, pretty photo.
