Quiet Ones~Ghazal


My heart lies with the quiet ones

I hear their sighs with each new sun


Striving to survive is the creed

No alibis found from the sun


Their souls are free and alive

The eyes filled with light of the sun


When I arrive much shall be learned

They are as wise as aged sun


Yet they live and thrive every day

My heart hears cries under the sun

Write a Ghazal about where your heart is.


Published by: writersdream9

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
