A shadorma is made up of one or more sestets (6-line stanzas) that follow the rhyme scheme 3-5-3-3-7-5.
There is a debate as to whether a shadorma is a traditional or or invented form of poetry. It allegedly originated in Spain. However, that is not supported by historical poetry textbooks or anthologies. (Source: Wikipedia)
