Napowrimo 21 – Naani


I know that life is short
sometimes sweet, sometimes sad,
never easy, that’s for sure,
merely to be lived.

Today’s prompt at Phoenixrising  is to use the Indian form, Naani, which means an expression of one and all. It consists of 4 lines, the total lines consists of 20 to 25 syllables. The poem is not bounded to a particular subject. Generally it depends upon human relations and current statements.  Yesterday’s prompt at Napowrimo was to write about something we know.
