Your Measure – Jorio

5 Comments

fathomless in unspoken words
garnered in unexpressed yearning
unfettered, yet captive, within
you’re loved, soulfully, unconditionally!

**************
Bhavya Grey Kaushik, from FB, and a wonderful writer, had instructed me on the nuances of the Joria, its form, theme, and sent a link for more samples. Perhaps the readers here too, could try their hand at it. What I have understood, is that it is called “Cuboid writing”.
“A Jorio, also known as a Joria (plural)  is an ancient Persian writing artform. The poetic cubism consists of four lines with four words in each line. Its short and simple poetic characteristic makes it very easy to write, as there are no considerations of any syllable count – as in the case of other forms like Haiku or Tanka. A jorio is mostly about a moment in time, feeling, thought, story. It can describe an event like a falling autumn leaf or a feeling, like dejection from a loved one. Try not to rhyme it though. I mean, a non-rhyming scheme is not mandatory, but it is appreciable.” It is more about symbolism, about the fleeting, or lasting evocative lingering image it leaves with you 🙂 As I understand it!

Here it is, the link to read more:
