Inner Peace

Inner Peace – By June Perkins

This poem continues my daily warm ups in poetic techniques and is a Naani, an Indian form of poetry that reminds me of the Haiku.  Its form consists of four lines adding up to a maximum of 25 syllables.

Here is my attempt to write a set of linked Naani. I’d like to write a few more of these to truly master the form.  I do like the potential of it and it lends itself to pithy lines.

Inner peace
With curious questions
To confused inner child
Who rebels only to understand

World peace
Begins with inner peace
Calming the inner child
To make Divine footprints

Divine footprints
Give power
To one so young
To become future ancient

Divining
Equality needs one feather more
To assist her flight
To true destiny

By June Perkins
