Sigh Simply Sighs

If a drop of tear drops when he’s alone, that’s love, And a sigh sighs and softly does bemoan, that’s love. A lover carves his statue in beloved’s heart; If that statue breathes in a lovely zone, that’s love. A lover may let his heart make a sigh-tempest, Yet if he can tame gently that cyclone, that’s love. A dark cloud labours with vapors yet with no whines; If she rains like a cascade with no groan, that’s love. I saw a doe drive a deer from a grassy zone; If he can sing, letting her own that lawn, that’s love. Sky sobs slow at dawn when stars sing their farewell song; If stars kindle a moonless night alone, that's love. A teardrop grieves, bewails and moans in poet's heart; If he breathes and makes it a poem - known, that’s love. Syllabic count: 12 syllables in each line (Ref: www.howmanysyllables.com) *A 3rd Place*in the following contest (judged on Oct. 3, 2020) Sept. 12, 2020 Ghazal Poetry Contest Sponsor: Silent One
