“The Triskele,” A Shadorma Poem

This week for my Tanka Tuesday poetry challenge I want to share a new poetry form called the Shadorma. You can learn about this form HERE.

The Triskele

Celtic crest
past, present, future,
triple self
number three
life cycles that never end
life, death, and rebirth.

The Triskele is an ancient Celtic symbol which represents the cycles that never ends: the journey of life, death, and rebirth that is always in motion, and neverending.

  1. It is so sweet of you, to always keep us in the loop of wonderful energies. I just love that you share all these different styles of poetry. Yes, one day I will be working with many of them, I promise. <3

  2. Infinite life cycles–past and future. So cool, Colleen.
    I haven’t written a shadorma in a while. For a time, I was writing them often.
