whispers of spring lilacs in the misty morning their sweet perfume fills the air cut blooms in vases Came across a new poetry form earlier today, Naani. The form is Telagu (India), 4 lines, between 20-24 syllables in total and is often about human relations or current statements (events? ... this part wasn't clear). This poem was inspired in part by a friend (first two lines), Christine Amaryllis Haskell...without her, the poem might not have come together:) Thanks my BFF!

Hi Kashinath:) I was browsing on some website (sorry forget which one;) and found this form. It looked intriguing so tried one. More challenging than it initially appeared though I really enjoyed the challenge! Thanks for your comment. Carol
