I had fun with this and will definitely try it again. Next time I want to try to add the "rhyme" before the "repeat" (sorry my brain can't recall the terms in this forms today!)

I didn't get a chance to try the Ghazal but thanks for introducing me to the form - I'll have to try one later.

you get pictures. i was confused on what this poem style was. and i'm in florida... so you get some pictures of the gorgeous sunset i saw. to clarify, the top two are with the flash on, and the bottom one is with the flash off.

cheers

Sorry, hit 'enter' before putting in my URL! Two ghazals I wrote earlier...

I puzzled over the ghazal and posted an older poem plus a link for a fun word site and an older watercolor.

I really really wanted to write a happy poem this week. But when I tried to write a ghazal, I just found it tooo difficult. If nothing else, it was a good exercise in a new style (for me at least) of poetry.

ghazals are a wonderful form to have discovered and participated in creating... it was worthy of the struggle to find a way through... blank
