Ghazal (pronounced as Guzzle or Ghuzzle) is my favourite form of poetry. Ghazal was born in Arabia, grew in Persia and matured in India and Pakistan. Ghazal is one of the most complex forms of poetry and very popular in Persian, Urdu and Hindi languages. In fact it is a form native to those languages just like a Haiku is to Japanese. If you want to understand the complexities of Ghazal, please view my article - The beauty of Ghazal

Under the cover of mist, bloomed a beautiful rose

Amidst sprinkling of dew, bloomed a beautiful rose

With dreams in its heart and wishes in its eyes

Over the gentle breeze, danced the joyful rose

Gleaming in glory under warm tender sunrays

With soulmate butterfly, played the blissful rose

Showered fountains of color and nectar of love

On each other, the butterfly and, the wonderful rose

Then one day it had to go, as destiny willed

And it took along the colors of the pitiful rose

Lost colors, lost nectar, lost love, lost hope

Dew still gleamed on petals of the tearful rose

Lost life, lost haven, lost purpose, lost will

Wilted and died Dhruv’s love, the fateful rose
