The graveyard is dark, eerie at full moon
Honeysuckle scents the light of the moon
The boy down the road becomes a werewolf
and gives the neighbours a fright at full moon
Gravestones are lifted and vampires break free
to find people to bite under the moon
Inner city streets are crowded tonight -
street gangs and demons fight under the moon
When Romeo gets lost in the garden
Juliet shivers at sight of the moon.
Chapter 4 of Unleash the Poem Within suggests that the ghazal is a perfect form for daydreaming and letting your mind wander. I was obviously thinking of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in these daydreams! I wrote another ghazal on Crafty Green Poet here.
The Ghazal Page , an excellent resource to find out more about this fascinating form, is currently holding a competition for moon ghazals.
