A shadorma:
it’s a 6-line poem of 3/5/3/3/7/5
syllables per lines respectively

Cuddly in
his arms safe from all
How she wished
forever
it should sustain this way but
alas  -  just a dream

  11. 'Alas' is such a useful word for describing the human condition, especially when dreams meet the real world. Nice job.

    Your shadorma just the right length for a whispy, drifting dream
