The Ride

The calming purple and sunburst hues paint the sky.
The California coast captivates your eyes.

The ocean strikes the rocks with force.
The waves roll in as the strength is released from the source.

You face into the wind  above the mammoth cliffs
You can see for miles as nature is revealed, as your mind drifts.

You grip the guide and lift the hang glider and launch into the wind.
The cool breeze against your hair, your heart pounding this true pleasure must be a sin.

You glide down and soar just above the surface.
The smell and feel of the ocean fill your mind with purpose.

You follow a bird in flight as it spreads wings so pure.
You soar in tandem your mind so free and secure.

The sunset glow is majestic as you steer back to the beach.
High in the sky the stars are brilliant and seem to be within reach.

You ease down slowly as you land.
Your feet ease into the soft white sand.

You take another gaze to the beauty in the sky.
And relive your adventure as you take a deep breath and sigh.

    Hello new poet friend, this is a Ghazal only contest & though you do have couplets they are not falling into what I asked for in regard to a ghazal [I know there are many different definitions of what is a ghazal BUT] please check my OLD blog - it will show you exactly what I mean. Light & Love

    strive for lines of equal length, you MUST use a repeated word or phrase at the end of line 1,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16 etc. There MUST be a rhyming word BEFORE the RADEEF [repeated word or phrase]ex:The calming purple and sunburst hues paint the sky./Your eyes captivate as BLUES paint the sky. [Your repeated phrase /paint the sky. Your rhyming words HUES/BLUES]
