A young heart, a soul of ancient Torah
Strength to the power that is his aura
The slings and arrows of life untamed
Just slide from the plating of his aura
When my soul’s shards were jumbled about
Calm was found in the peace of his aura
Emotions tailored skin with cutlery
Vanish in the healing of his aura
He is candlelight in the deepest dark
It is the harmony of his aura
Those who turned the page to my new peace
Know the benevolence of his aura
And when asked what factor gives him his peace
States it’s a Raivenne, that is his aura
National Poetry Month for 2021 Day 24 I’m trying a Ghazal
A Ghazal is a collection of two-line poems or couplets which follow six rules.
First – Each verse or couplet should be readable as an independent poem, which do not have to rely on the other verses, though the full ghazal has a theme – traditionally romantic or spiritual love and longing.
Second – Each line of the couplets must have the same meter. All the lines in one ghazal must have the same meter.
Third – All of the couplet verses must end with the same refrain, which could be a word or a phrase.
Fourth – The words before the refrain phrase must rhyme.
Fifth – The beginning couplet must repeat the refrain word or phrase in both lines.
Sixth – The final couplet must reference the poet’s name, or alias and sometimes a derivation of the meaning of the poet’s name. This was a traditional way for the poet to sign, or to affix his or her mark upon the work
