I’ve been playing with the idea for weeks, I’m not a poet, but I wanted to try and see if I could at least pull off a half, maybe not decent, but a half okay, sort of all right, you know, passable poem. Sadly, it seems, I picked a bad week to try my hand at Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge, but I’ve made up my mind to give it a crack anyway. So, enjoy, it was fun.
As the sun’s rays break through the dark morning sky,
I let my mind wander, I let my heart fly.
I rise up though the trees, up through the clouds,
My mind is a condor, I let my heart fly.
I rush towards her beauty, I feel her soft light,
I let my mind ponder, I let my heart fly.
Through day and though night and through sunset I fight,
Surviving just to feel her, I let my heart fly.
I’m griped by her power, I’m lost in her love,
Her love I don’t squander, I let my heart fly.
Dawn was a theme, and a Ghazal is a love poem, so I think, this worked. Head over here to join in on the challenge.
