A ghazal for the Pond Poetry Contest.
Sun rays percolating through the glassy splinters
Usher warmth, relief through craggy splinters.
Panorama of the azure sky,
A beauty to cherish through dainty splinters.
Resplendent with the morning glory,
Bitter chill erased through cozy splinters.
Respite from the wintry gusts,
Enticing pleasure through cushy splinters.
The daystar with its mellow beams
Presents a view through the lovely splinters.
A Ghazal is a poem that is made up like an odd numbered chain of couplets, where each couplet is an independent poem. It should be natural to put a comma at the end of the first line. The Ghazal has a refrain of one to three words that repeat, and an inline rhyme that preceedes the refrain. Lines 1 and 2, then every second line, has this refrain and inline rhyme, and the last couplet should refer to the authors pen-name... The rhyming scheme is AA bA cA dA eA etc.
