Tibetan Poetry

Mgur from Tibet is yodic verse (union of the self with the supreme-being). A more detailed description of the verse is unavailable, but from the example I could find, the form uses metaphor and parallels.

 

Mgur is:

  • syllabic, written in more than 6 syllable lines.
  • popularly written in 5 lines.
  • a vehicle for meditation.
  • often employs metaphor and or parallelism.

     

    Singed Wings by Judi Van Gorder

     

    A flame flickers behind the veil

    changing from red to blue and back,

    a white moth with transparent wings

    flutters in and through the small light

    it dares to touch the living fire.
