Day 13 – NaPoWriMo 2017 – It was you!

Published 13th April 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 13th – The prompt was given pretty late today, evening around 19:30. Optional prompt for today is an oldie-but-a-goody: the ghazal. The form was originally developed in Arabic and Persian poetry, but has become increasingly used in English, after being popularized by poets including Agha Shahid Ali. A ghazal is formed of couplets, each of which is its own complete statement. Both lined of the first couplet end with the same phrae or end-word, and that end-word is also repeated at the end of each couplet. If you’re really feeling inspired, you can also attempt to incorporate internal rhymes and a reference to your own name in the final couplet. Here are a few examples – Evie Shockley’s “where you are planted,” Ali’s “Tonight,” and Patricia Smith’s “Hip Hop Ghazal.”

It was you!

Why did the cupid introduce you,
When I had no crush on you,

The fate bought me to your direction,
When I wasn’t even searching for you,

My friend list was huge,
But there was something about you,

I am alone, with friends or in the classroom,
I blush thinking about you,

When I looked at the dark sky,
The moon reminds me of you,

When I dance in the rain,
The songs played are on you,

The cool breeze blowing towards me,
Makes me wish I am hugged by you,

All these feelings growing, I realise,
My first love and it was you!
