Indira Renganathan Poems
A Day With The Lord
Wake up o'Lord, it's winter's vernal shine
Dawning to be consecrated with mercy Thine
Whilst yet a darkling sky's in full moon shine
In tardy treads it's pinking too fine
As Thou asterism Arudhra is on to sign
Conjuring melodies of cooing birds pine
Invoked Margazhi-matins intensify to combine
Intending for anointed ablutions aromatic divine
Wake up o'Lord, wake up
Then it means to be sanguine more
Sacred bathing mounds in variety to pour
Shiva is fresh and feasted to score
Follow now His jaunt of cosmic chore
Prime at Dharukavan blissful, He dances ...
The Florette was invented by Jan Turner. It appears to be her attempt to emulate in poetic form,
the growth of a flower by lengthening the last line of each stanza longer than the others, showing growth.
The Florette is stanzaic, written in any number of either quatrains or cinquains:
When written in quatrains the Florette is:
syllabic, quatrains 8-8-8-12
rhymed, quatrains aaba ccdc etc with internal cross rhyme from L3 to the 8th syllable of L4.
