Now here is a challenge for all who take pen in hand.
Naani is an Indian short poetry form introduced by one of the Teluga poets, Dr. N Gopi, from the Teluga university in Andhra Pradesh.
It has 20 and 25 syllables over 4 lines.
During November I am going to attempt to write a Naani each day. Wish me luck.
Lady birch ‘came out’ from
winter finishing school.
Now her season’s over
she wears a gown of gold.
