Late again! I can't seem to get my act together this semester, so please forgive the late post.
The landay is an Afghani poetic form. It's described as "an oral and often anonymous scrap of song created by and for mostly illiterate people." Formally, a landay is composed of couplets, with 9 syllables in the first line and 13 in the second. Sometimes the couplets rhyme, but there is no requirement to do so.
You can learn more about the landay and read some fine examples in this Poetry Magazine feature.
I hope you'll join me this week in writing a landay. Please share a link to your poem or the poem itself in the comments.
