The Door – B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – Essence

For this week, we feature the work of Eyvind Earle and give you the option of writing a Shadorma (a non-rhyming six-line poem with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5) – or an Essence. The essence was used in December, but it is good to review the tools in your writing toolbox from time to time.

Created by Emily Romano, the “Essence” consists of two lines of six syllables each. There is an end rhyme (rhyme at the end of the line) and an internal rhyme (rhyme in the middle of the line). You may give your Essence whatever title you desire.

what lies behind the door?
I’ll remind you to tour

mystery
what’s behind the door?
a story
of people
there’s always something to know
on what’s behind it
