Infidelity - Naani Poem

Infidelity (Naani Form)

When Love, in mercurial flight forsakes
The heart that it once cherished
Tears that flow leave
Vows and rings...tarnished.

    I'm loving this Naani form, it affords the poet greater freedom due to its fluidity. It's like a concise free verse(okay, I love free verse), and I believe free verse lovers would more likely gravitate towards the Naani. Nice Naani Cynthia - very well written.

    Thanks again Vicky, it is easy as long as you have a central theme in mind. I am excited to read your Naani poems soon.

    You captured the Naani form very well. The subject is captured within the few lines of the poetry form. Well penned.

    Lovely poem - what is the naani? Is it native to the Philippines?

    Hello Joann, Thank you for the comment - the Naani is an Indian Telugu poem that has 4 lines and 20-25 syllables. It is about any topic, but mostly about life and human relations. The syllables are spread in 4 lines and there is no specific number of syllables per line - just that it must total 20-25. It it concise like the Haiku or the Epigram. Hope you can try it. Sincerely, Cynthia
