Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 23 March 2019!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Ghazal. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Ghazal poem?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
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.
