In this series of Intuitive poetries that I’m penning for the #BlogchatterA2Z challenge and NaPoWriMo, here comes the next heteronym character, Yazhnila who is bilingual. In Tamil, she writes under the pen name, யாழினி (Yazhini).

This poem is inspired by the NaPoWriMo Prompt that challenges to write a poem that contains at least one of a different kind of simile – an epic simile. Also known as Homeric similes, these are basically extended similes that develop over multiple lines. 

Introducing Yazhnila with this poem:

Day29-NaPoWriMo-Yazhnila-An Excerpt

YAZHNILA

Where I come from, sweat’s our first skin
like fine linen, gossamer-thin
woven in threads of transparency
letting you breathe 
through your coloured underneath
with pearls of beauty
in hues of hardwork 
bordering along
the contours of clothing
that’s a fine linen, gossamer-thin
Where I come from, sweat’s our first skin
