awaiting the echoes
from mountains, melodies
transform nature’s beauty

Abhanga (or abhang), per Wikipedia, is a form of devotional poetry sung in praise of the Hindu god Vitthal, also known as Vithoba. As a love poem, mine is a form of devotional. The elements of abhanga are as follows:
• stanzaic, written in any number of 4 line stanzas.
• syllabic, 6-6-6-4 syllables each
• rhyme pattern … x-a-a-x, where x does not rhyme
• often internal rhyme is employed
