Weekly Writing Prompt 17: Prophetic Song For the New Year

It is time to write my last poem of 2015. Using the Secret Keeper’s list of words I am choosing to use the Shadorma form  to sing my way into the 2016.

My necessary words this week are:  | PART | STONE | FLAW | STRICT | NOTE |

Prophetic Song For the New Year


by JE Lillie

Still as stone

The old year sounds dead.

Flawed strict notes

Cannot be

Played again. Their parts undone,

I sing a New Year.

Flaws begin

With new notes unheard.


Parts falter.

Strict rhythms fall apart like

Water crumbling stones .

A cycle

Then more than a song


Flawed strict notes

My new theme a stone in place

 Part  of larger work.

  1. You really met the challenge with three stanzas of a shadorma. The optimism is uncertain for the New Year. I hope your Symphony in whatever form it takes becomes real. I know this is a poem and just the other day I responded to a comment when someone close thought I was writing about myself. I told them no. It’s about the world or at least part of it. I’m a writer. When writing I use my imagination. Go where it takes you and feel the Dream. – jk
