Magnificence!

Image credit; Sanin Sn @ Unsplash

Mammoth structure of marbles of the Mughal era

Masonry erected, showed architectural ingenuity of man

Monarch’s love for his beloved buried within

Magical horizon enhances its aura

Magnetic allure attracts tourists from across the globe

Mellowed today, yet remains a wonder of the world

Monumental opulence of love carved in stone.

This form of poetry is called Pleiades. It has only one word in the title followed by a seven line stanza. The first word of each line begins with the same letter as the title. Hope you enjoyed it!

    I do like this, Radika! The form really suits the description of the monumental masonry and the repetition of the β€˜m’ sound gives it a resonating quality.
