A Shadorma is suggested to be a Spanish form of poetry with a stanza (or sestet) of six lines each containing different syllabic content. It is claimed by some to be a modern form and by others to be an archaic form of Spanish poetry.
I have even read that someone thought it was a Spanish version of the various forms of haiku on which as a syllabic poem it is probably based
You can write a Shadorma of 1 sestet or as many as you like.
The syllabic count is as follows 3/5/3/3/7/5 in each sestet.
If anyone has any more information in English or Español about this form I would be grateful if you would let me know at:
Thank you/muchas gracias.
