November Naani #1

it is not safe here
if you are other
leave us to our madness
watch us implode


For November I am exploring the Naani. A Naani poem is a traditional Telugu poetry form. It has 4 lines with total number of syllables between 20 to 25. While the poem does not have to be about a particular subject it is often about human relations or current statements. The word Naani literally means “an expression of one and all”. The form was popularized by the renowned Indian poet Dr N. Gopi.
