    I. The Vedas: Jagati

    Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry Indian Poetry Vedic Verse Jagati (the god of nature and animals), in Hindu tradition Jagati is associated with the 4th horse harnessed to the golden chariot of the sun. This Vedicverse is a stanzaic form with a lot of room to maneuver and is often thematically associated with the body parts of hips, belly and penis also linked to the "bones of the Lord of the living entities", whatever that means. The elements of the Jagati are: stanzaic, 4 lines or padas syllabic, lines of 12 syllables each. metric. The heavy-light or guru-laghu pattern of the lines is language specific and probably impossible to duplicate in English. But for the purist you can try by converting heavy-light to Long-short vowel sounds. The metric pattern would then be sLsL,sLs,LsLss. (a predominantly iambic pattern emerges, sort of) Regression by Judi Van Gorder The acrid taste of earth upon the tongue of those who seek preservation of cultivated land becomes an addiction that inflames their resolve, blinds their eyes, and impedes mind set to compromise. Other Vedic forms Anistubh Brhati gayatri Jagati Pankti Tristubh Ushnik II. Sanskrit Verse Regional Forms: III. Bengali, IV. Hindi, V. Kashmiri, VI. Marathi and VII. Teluga
