Naani is one of India’s most popular Telugu poems. Naani 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. This poetry was introduced by one of the renowned Telugu poets Dr. N. Gopi, presently working as vice-chancellor to Telugu University, Andhra Pradesh.
Four of my Naani poems:
Chanting universal sounds,
amethyst mala counting around,
chakras’ energy begins to spin.
An amethyst mala; Google Images
Repeating the same
promise for over twenty years,
your words reach ears
too filled for more.
the ability to tear
down that which you
With a handshake
and a pat on the back…
sharks circle, grins stretching
wide…reeling in their supporters.
