Alankar(Decor) -90


The Complete Couplet is a poetic unit of 2 lines
that expresses a complete thought within itself.
Meter and rhyme are at the poet's discretion.

Attired, Adorned, Offered-
(Some complete couplets on the nine planets)

Sanguine Sun spotted red with ruby
Ingrained wheat for food salty sweatly

Milky Moon moving around white and pearly
Rich and ricey for minds and hearts happy

Coral Mars in enraged orange balled colorfully
Feasting leguminous with red legume family

Ever green Mercury enrolled with emerald verdantly
Fed with green bean pulsatively

Giant Jupiter yellowing in sapphire edifyingly
Grand connoisseur of chicpeas tastily

White Venus spangling diamonded masterfully
Vacillated for snowy lablab more ravingly

Slow and steady Saturn blues in sapphire auspiciously
Grubbing over sesame mirthfully

Ascending up the node yellowed in garnet lunatically
Blackened Rahu pulsed for black gram suplicatingly

Descending down the node with cat's eye lustrously
Darkened Ketu squirms gulping horse gram blessingly

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
