She being the moon loved truly

Spread the love

Whether ocean bares heart to moon it doesn’t matter,
It rises and falls in rhythm with moon is another matter.

When she kisses his storms and seeps beneath the skin,
In spite of fury more than word can delineate the matter.

Though wrapped in mist and cloud of the brooding night,
She beams when he speaks to her about things that matter.

A long while amid phases of the moon coming and going,
Knowing drops of ocean echo eternity, it doesn’t matter.

Tell one the story about how the moon adores the ocean,
Then observe if he dares to dive into the heart of matter.

    How clever of you to choose the ghazal! I love this, Sanaa. Each couplet is richly woven and you introduce a new meaning of the catch phrase each time.

  2. Bjorn Rudberg says:

    I agree with Kerry… love how you have used the ghazal… works so well with the quote… the sea and the moon, the tide exactly like leaving and coming.

  3. Jim says:

    Wonderful, Sanaa. Seems you caught well the relationship between the moon and water. It intensifies with the closeness, even though far physically apart. This is evidenced by the tides resulting from the gravity pull.

    I quite like it when the Moon flirts with the Ocean but the Ocean is a pragmatist and just waves at the Moon knowing such a romance would hurt both of them.

  5. Mary says:

    The moon, the ocean, the clouds. I like the way you have worked all of these together in such a mysterious way. The picture you chose is really evocative.

  6. Daniella Moyles says:

    Sigh .. the moon and the ocean have been together side by side since the beginning of time. Such a lovely ghazal, Sanaa!

  7. Kim M. Russell says:

    Another stunning beauty, Sanaa! I love the lines:
    ‘When she kisses his storms and seeps beneath the skin’
    and
    ‘Tell one the story about how the moon adores the ocean,
    Then observe if he dares to dive into the heart of matter.’

    Wow. The combination of form and idea worked so well! I enjoyed being rocked back and forth on the verses. πŸ™‚
