Glass of life

I have drunk

Deep into the glass

Of my life.

The last dregs

Still remain to reflect on

How I spent my days.

This is my first attempt at a Spanish poetry form called Shadorma (Syllable structure structure: 3/5/3/3/7/5)
To learn more about Shadorma and to check out other people's attempt do visit One Stop Poetry. The image is from Magpie Tales Mag 61 weekly picture meme.

Sad to think we have nothing left in the end but dregs. I wasn't familiar with Shadoma. Thanks for introducing me to it. I may try my own hand at it.

Paul Andrew Russell said...

I like this. Metaphorical reflections in a glass of wine, nice. :-)

The Fool said...

Thanks, Stand and Paul.

Reflections said...

Drink ye well of this glass. It holds much in its vibrancy and wisdom.

Vinay said...

Hmm.. very wise, TF :) but it sort of reminded me of Trelawney reading tea leaves :) nice form, I'll try it out soon!

btw, could u plz make your comment form as popup? the embedded one makes it difficult to comment sometimes :)

The Fool said...

Thanks, Vinay. Ha, Trelawney? I was thinking where I had heard the name. Then it clicked. Its been years since I read Harry Potter. Do try this form. I though embedded comments are more friendly for smart phones and office browsers. is that not so? Ayways let me change it and see if it increases comment flow.

dregs seem so sad, but I suppose very true, emotional poem.
