Summary

The "Ghazal" is typically about the mystical aspects of devotion and the pain and longing that come from lost love.
An arrangement of couplets that don't have to relate.

Five to twelve (I did six) two line stanzas with the second line ending with the same word as the last word in the first line then continuing with that word for each second line ending. Last stanza can be the "signature" one (using your name)

At the conclusion of all sound there is still yet a noise.

How could there yet still be a sound without any noise?

 

Behind it all, is there a ringing note?

Like water running through a metal pipe noise?

 

Perhaps the sound ringing is not an external one.

Deep within may be a whole different world of noise.

 

Heart pumping, blood flowing in a cosmic circle.

The inner ear being ever responsive to any noise.

 

Stirrup, cochlea, drum; transforming sound -

into information from nothing but noise.

 

Sound upon sound, interwoven in time

A name called Don emerged, assembled from noise.
