Written for: Phoenix Rising, Destination: The Taj Mahal
Today, we ask you to use the magnificent Taj Mahal as inspiration for your poems. They could be about someone’s final resting place written in maybe an Elegy, or you could incorporate an Indian form of poetry (*Naani, comes to mind). Any adventure you can muster based on this stop on our itinerary is most welcome!
*Naani: A form of Indian poetry that is an expression of one and all.
A Naani poem has 4 lines. The total number of syllables in the poem are between 20 to 25. While the poem does not have to be about a particular subject it is often about human relations or current statements.
Nothing as titanic as
the Taj Mahal, besides
it is taken. My essence
needs freedom of ocean
The last line is a nice surprise. 😀
