A ketek is a complex form of a holy Vorin poem which reads the same forwards and backwards (allowing for alteration of verb forms), and is also divisible into five distinct smaller sections, each of which makes a complete thought.

The complete poem must form a sentence that is grammatically correct and (theoretically) poignant in meaning. Because of the difficulty in constructing a ketek, the structure was once considered the highest and most impressive form of all Vorin poetry.[1]

ExamplesEdit

Above silence, the illuminating storms-dying storms-illuminate the silence above.

NotesEdit

Jasnah Kholin believed that Allahn, along with others, mistook the home of the Knights Radiant (i.e., Urithiru) as their birthplace.[citation needed]
