Poet's Notes

Blame it on the Moon

The shadows caste were long upon the span of empty field,
darkness grayed the rye gleanings beneath a Hunter's moon.

Purple pansies bruised by an early frost bend blackening
in the porch's planter hiding there beneath a Hunter's moon.

The farmer's gunshot cracks the air a white tail flees to glen
soon the venison with hang on hooks beneath a Hunter's moon.

The silo's full of cattle corn, the apple trees picked clean, so bare
ring necked geese are on the lake lamenting beneath a Hunter's Moon.

All that's secret, haunts the shade, fingering the pods and seeds
blanched, washed by the light unwavering beneath a Hunter's Moon.

    It's NOT a tradition Ghazal but a Contemporary Ghazal, in the contemporary version the rhyme in lines 1,2,4,6,8 etc is not needed. All that's needed is LONG couplets [simply meaning a 2 line thought, not 2 lines end rhymed] where mystical thought is portrayed.

    The only aspect of the traditional ghazal I chose to use was the repeated phrase the RADEEF
