Numbered Days: A Naani


Numbered Days: A Naani
©2016 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer

Let me spend
my last few breaths and what’s left of me,
to show you for the last time,
how do I love thee.

In response to Blogging from A to Z Challenge: N is for Naani.


The Naani is a stanzaic form found at Shadow Poetry and is most often an observation of human relations or current events although it can be open to any subject. Naani means “an expression of one and all”. The stanza form was introduced by Dr. N. Gopi an administrator at the Teluga University.

The defining features of the Naani are:

  • stanzaic, written in any number of quatrains.
  • syllabic, with a total syllable count of between 20 and 25 syllables.

    1. glad the photo fits the poem. 🙂 I am almost delighted when I see old couples still holding hands. I admire them and when I see one, I also whisper a prayer that I’ll have someone who will hold my hand until I’m old and grey. 🙂


      1. Not too cheesy, I agree with you. I too find old couples to be inspiring. I used to want to be them one day but that is looking less and less likely as the years go by. you’re welcome 🙂

      2. everything is possible my dear. 🙂 There are some women who are destined for such. I have three aunts who are now almost at their 60s and they remained single. plus one uncle. (on my mom’s side). I think when you desire it it can happen. 🙂 ❤
