This week : NAANI 

This poetry was introduced by one of the renowned Telugu poets Dr. N.Gopi, presently working as vice-chancellor to Telugu University, Andhra Pradesh.
  1. Naani is one of Indian's most popular Telugu poems. Naani means an expression of one and all.
  2. It consists of 4 lines in total
  3. All the four lines consists of 20 to 25 syllables. 
  4. The poem is not bounded to a particular subject but it depends upon human relations and current statements. 
A dream
As a particle in eyes
Remains as tear
Wounded desire.

- By Bollimuntha venkata Ramana Rao

A to Z Challenge  of the Alphabet " Q" along with today’s prompt of NaPoWriMo which requires a poem of  erasure or recombination. My mission is to create a poem, either by erasing words from the paragraph, or recombining the words that are already there from a paragraph from Annie Dillard’s book, The Writing Life.

“I pulled down the curtains. When I leaned over the typewriter, sparks burnt round holes in my shirt, and fire singed a sleeve. I dragged the rug away from the sparks. In the kitchen I filled a bucket with water and returned to the erupting typewriter. The typewriter did not seem to be flying apart, only erupting. On my face and hands I felt the heat from the caldera. The yellow fire made a fast, roaring noise. The typewriter itself made rumbling, grinding noise; the table pitched. Nothing seemed to require my bucket of water. The table surface was ruined, of course, but not aflame. After twenty minutes or so, the eruption subsided.”

"NAANI" Poetry

Sparks of fire
Heat on my face and hands
Subsided with water
Twenty minutes after Bathing

Sparks of fire
Erupts emotional strain
Words in heat unattended
When ignored slowly subsided

The above two,I believe, satisfies the NaPoWriMo prompt.Now,for the A to Z Challenge ,

Twosome in Night time
Cool Breeze under Moonlight
Heart speaks more than Mind
Quiet Moments

Design of Letters
With correct presentation
Targeting word's essence
Writing Challenges
