Moonlit Glow #poetry # #photography


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


“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. 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


    1. Thanks yes all the shots on this blog are mine. I spent two months with no hands editing photos (with my index finger). Initially I thought that would be all I could do for A to Z. I am proud of the letters they make their own statement. Thanks for your Follow


  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.
