Shuffleboard – a Shadorma poem


Shuffleboard

by Tessa Smeigh November 2018

shuffleboard

aim for the right side

then aim left,

off the right

possible point, get knocked off

no control at all

Common Evil.

Be bold and catch it.

Food is thrown,

Slop is caught.

It runs down all our bodies.

Evil runs the show.

NANOWRIMO and Haiku Poetry


I recently mentioned to an editor that I didn’t expect to enter this year. I was simply not in the mood to write stories. Although I am writing daily Haiku’s.

To my surprise she said she saw no reason why I couldn’t write a book of Haiku’s. So I have thought about it and maybe I will take my Haiku’s and put them together as a possible book. 50,000 words  in that form would be harder to accomplish, but even if I didn’t hit the goal, I would have a good size manuscript of poems. I also write Shadormas and a few other types.

I don’t really know how to set something like that up, but November is just to get a rough copy any how so maybe it doesn’t matter for now and I will spend time after it is over perfecting it. Poetry books are fairly popular.

Jazzy suit.

The site in the woods.

Rates charged,

Show begins.

Rises right on time.

Reach inside.

Deep down in the square.

A full box,

Make your choice.

It is full of toys and books.

Choose just one for him.
