Ghazal

Today’s prompt from the NaPoWriMo web site was to write a ghazal. The ghazal is an Arabic form of poetry that is made up of several couplets, and in the first couplet, both lines end with the same word. The other couplets end with that same word. Also, each couplet is a complete statement. This is my attempt at writing a ghazal.


There is no greater treasure than friendship.

Worth more than gold and rubies is friendship.

I remember we would play on the swings,

Laughing, we preserved our friendship.

All through high school, studying together,

We expanded our minds and our friendship.

Off to college, our lives diverged,

Yet we still meet, rekindling our friendship.

I remember you would visit me, supporting,

Because suffering together is also part of friendship.
