Naani: Heart Tea


With thanks to Kira who introduced me to the poetry form, Naani. Naani is one of India’s most popular Telugu poems. Naani means an expression of one and all; it consists of 4 lines and overall there should be between 20-25 syllables.

The hub showed me the Doc Brown video at the base of this blog yesterday. It made me laugh and is the inspiration for my Naani.

Naani: Heart Tea

The first cup in the morning
Is the best
My confession is
I truly love the rest

  1. ha ha ha… now that’s my kinda rap!!! Excellent!!! Loved your Naani too… haven’t heard of the form but it does seem to go with tea!!! Just don’t put that milk in first hey!!! Thanks for the laugh Polly! 🙂


  2. Cool poem and I couldn’t agree more 🙂


  3. LOL! I’ve never seen him before, but now I’ll have to look him up. That was hilarious! I can’t live without my tea. Usually iced tea, but a steaming cup of milky Earl Grey in the morning is incredible! 🙂


  4. Ha…. I am a coffee drinker by nature, but I DO enjoy an occasional tea.


  5. This was great!!! Love it 🙂


  6. To us Americans, everything sounds more sophisticated with an English accent. And now I’ve just learned rap does, too…

    I love my first cup of morning tea along with my newspaper–the old-fashioned paper kind, not an electronic newsreader. Bliss.


  7. Very fitting 🙂
    A cuppa is just the ticket 🙂


  8. I’m addicted to caffeine !
    Oh and Naani also means maternal grandmother in Hindi. 😛
