Saturday Slices 16.1.21

24 Thursday rhymes 27.6.13

Ah the wind from Arabian sand,
Carrying story of distant land,
The shadow of henna stained hand,
Whispering tales of warriors grand,
Magic carpet and wizard’s wand!

Sharmishtha Basu

Mukhammas is a form of Urdu poetry consisting of five-line verses. In the first verse, the final word of each line rhymes. Subsequent verses each introduce a new rhyme, but they all feature a fifth line which rhymes with the first verse.
