The Quest, a poem by Lexi Flint

Day 28  of the Poetic Asides 2013 poem a day challenge

Write a Shadroma, a six line poem with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5

here is my attempt.

Enjoy,

Lexi

Part I

He asks what

he doesn’t really

want to know

the answers

to, but curiosity

gets the best of him.

Part II

She answers,

a small lie, smiling

hiding the

truth within

her heart for fear that he

might break it again.

Part III

He grasps her

fragile heart within

his work worn

hands knowing

this may be his last chance to

right the wrongs he made.
