The Pearl

 The pearl 
White as pale moon
Smooth like satin and silk
When rolls over, flows as if milk
Safe in the hearts of lovers and poets 
Tucked far- far away from riots
In the calm of voids
Within shell lay
The pearl 

A rictameter is a nine-line poem. Each line has a specific number of syllables. The first line has two syllables. The next line has four. The next line has six. The next line has eight. The next line has ten. And we work our way down again (8,6,4,2)
The last line is the same as the first line.

 Oh! Lord Shiva in thy glory I bask,
no hard or difficult seems a task.
Giving me strength,
hope of unending length.
You held me always,
cared for all days.

Many blessings you rained,
protected me from uncertain.
Smoothened my thorny path,
healed this aching heart.
Freed from agonies,
restored inner peace.

In vast ocean our boats float,
harsh sun killing us till we rot.
Save us oh! mighty god,
You always helped us a lot.
Once more, please answer our heartfelt prayer,
removing every painful layer.
