Moonlit Glow #poetry # #photography


G

Gazing into moonlit glow

Inspired, I pause

Entranced by ethereal beauty

There is something  inside

Makes me want to sing

No solitary song is hers

She that has captivated for centuries

What can a mere mortal bestow?

Gazing into moonlit  glow

Ecstatic, I smile

She knowingly has cast her spell

Drunken,  I bob and sway

I croon a serenade

My eyes reflecting swaying curves

Warm arms envelop her

I dance the silent song I know

 

Ghazal
“Traditionally invoking melancholy, love, longing, and metaphysical questions, ghazals are often sung by Iranian, Indian, and Pakistani musicians.”

(I am not familiar with this form so will just write a love poem rather than butcher a form. Poets.org has been helpful with this poetry information.)

 

“Poetry is  a deal of joy and pain and wonder with a dash of the dictionary.”

Khalil Gibran (Brainy Quotes)

  1. This is beautiful. I am now following you as i love poetry, from another a-z blogger. Did you take that photo? It’s stunning. I hope you don’t mind but I have re-blogged this poem on to my scrapbook blog, it’s where I keep things I don’t want to lose x

  2. I like the Frost quote from your H post (but could find no comment link there) and, I think, your poem, too, though I’m not really a free verse fan.
    Now, I’m going to have to look up this ghazal stuff.
