I here attempt to show the Rubiyat; as a fragrent entity, the words/empathy of which I allude
To as petals of flowers, ( you may have guessed as much? ) in the 1st lines it effects
people of all ages, enveloping them in its form and narrative, Rubiyat is based around either a 5 or 4 syllable per line count, hence my  "penta meteron" 
"tetra pedes" ." to try to place its structure within the " flow of its images" That I
attempt to convey, the sober black being ink.. 'hope you enjoy this piece..! 

Yours Joe.."  
Of bud bossed delicate; in its aroma much will enfold! The turbulence of youth; also the seasoned and the old. Tetra pedes, cross pages, sober.. in black, throughout the ages Oh! to pass to others this understanding; and in bold. Manifold are images, ‘thrusting now fresh into flower, To awareness, of precious cargo; as in life’s laden bower...’ Penta metron sketch outlines, though imperfectly employed; I reach to the stars today; as yet passes my hour!... Translucence shows within the fading of life’s colour As this continuing expressive awaits its turn, of another!.. My thoughts fill like pages, to blossoms in bloom A soft falling, as petals; to your earth, my sister & brother... To re-count of life’s possibility's... in the Rubaiyat form; Melding its grandeur; to the bland magnitude of today’s norm! Opening in its intricacy, the doorway to ecstasy Playing many a cadence, relayed from its echoes borne. Ever may its blossoms & completeness be flowering, Entwining with the lines of the sages, to forever cling! Refreshing the heart; perhaps a world? now tired and worn. To a climax of prosody, does this weave of true praises sing. © Joe I have added notes in the ‘To know more about this poem area’.

Exotic and rather fruity - like Sufi stuff. I read the Rubiyat many years ago. I think the words themselves are enchanting, regardless of meaning. Love, daver

hey, my Irish poem was not a limerick. It was a rondeau. Hmmm, I wonder if it had to be a limerick?? I didn't see that!!

A rather interesting rubaiyat - love this form. At first I thought it might be about minerals, as many of them are suitable to be cut into cabochons, but was pleasantly surprised to find a garden of aroma.

wow, Joe, this is so nice!!! yes, I can see it is like a petal unfolding. That was really great too how you did the information about it and explained the syllable count, etc. Thanks for that. Impressive work from you!
