Jinni: A Poem

Lost within an enchanted city street

I came upon a creature of bright light

Born of ravage wind and quivering might

That burned my soul with scorching heat


Reverence found a home in me

As I faced this otherworldly fire

With dancing flames that would not tire

As impassively unbound as the sea


Written by: Grusha Singh


A poem inspired partially by the tales of Arabian Nights

Still needs work, but just something I wanted to share! Feedback is appreciated, as always. This is my interpretation of the mythological Jinni (also spelled “genie”) inspired by what I have read about them. Hope you liked it!
