Raashi

Reigning the world of
Auroras,her visits bring
Showers of briliiance
Heaped upon mere works of art.
Ingordigious WE,await!

I am not sure of the syllable count but i have tried it to be 5-7-5-7-7 ( shortest choka)


ps: 5-7-5-7-7 form has a seperate name. I promise my next dedication to the one who gets that name for me ;) !!

pps: hope you like it girlie .. got inspired by your comment to Gulshan's post !

  2. I think a 5-7-5-7-7 form is called WAKA ... Waka is an unrhymed poem of five lines with syllable counts of 5-7-5-7-7 ... hehehe ... let me know if I get a dedication now ...


    Nice one to start with ... a deserving one though ;)

  6. Well, as I await your answer here, I would like to mention one thing ... the title of the poem is Raashi and I think, as the poem itselft suggest and as per the name of the real person here, it should be RASHI ...

    ... Pratibha, I checked with Rashi about it ... and I'm confirmed!! ;)
