DVERSE Poets’ featured form is the Ghazal. The Ghazal is an Arabic poetry that originated in the 6th century. To my ears, it has the rhythm of a tolling bell. The Ghazal has its unique rhyming and metering scheme which I do not think I accomplished. But I had to try anyway….

Oh, and thank you a lot for coming by and journeying with me through this Ghazal maze.
The earth resounds with voices
sighing unheard under the grave
they speak of these truths unknown
they’re wasted under the grave
Bare trees whisper to the breeze
the message rising from the grave
The flame breasted robins sing
coaxing the secret from the grave
Once the blessed morning came
the Eternal sprung from the grave
Through nature heaven revealed
Imelda, life ends not in the grave.
