Minorma is a poetic form that I invented today 21 June 2016. It is based on the flow that was created from the frequent use of the Shadorma which is a poetic form alleged to have originated in Spain (see details of Shadorma here https://geethaprodhom.wordpress.com/poems-by-poetry-forms/shadorma/ on this website). I called it Minorma because I wanted to liken it to the original form which inspired me and wanted it to contain the sense of being according to my norm (mi norma – a hybrid invented word taking its roots into actual concepts in different languages).
In the Minorma the poem consists of a five line stanza (4/5/7/5/6) for a total of 27 syllables. A poem may consist of one stanza, or an unlimited number of stanzas (a series of minormas)
