I love you
These are not just words
But actions
And choices
The sum of our formula
Equals our true bond.


This poem for Anna is for National/Global poetry writing month and this sums it all up for me. Get it, sums it all up? This poem structure for Day 7 of NaPoWriMo is a shadorma. According to NaPoWriMo, “the shadorma is a six-line, 26-syllable poem (or a stanza – you can write a poem that is made of multiple shadorma stanzas). The syllable count by line is 3/5/3/3/7/5.”
