Unfolded: An Ushnik

Dense, wild forest witnessed the
tale of one unfolded chair,
a tired man with graying hair,
a final note, a gun fired.

Ushnik (God of Wind orignating from the hairs of the body of the almighty Prajāpati) is a stanzaic Vedic meter. The 7th horse pulling the golden chariot of the sun god is named for this meter.

The defining features of the Ushnik are:

  • stanziac, any number of quatrains, 4 padas or lines.
  • syllabic, lines of 7 syllable each.

Cheers are shouted for my foe
on my ears boos come and go
they believe I’ll run and flee
round one’s done, the winner’s me.
