A Ghazal in English.

(A Ghazal is a piece of poetic composition that is made up like an odd numbered chain of couplets, where each couplet is an independent poem. Each couplet is called a sher/sheyr. The main common factor between various couplets is the rhyme and the refrain.)

The Ghazal developed in Persia in the 10th century AD. It was brought to India with the Mogul invasion in the 12th century. The Ghazal tradition is currently practiced in many countries in many languages like Urdu, Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi, Malayalam and also in English.)

Distinct Pleasure

 

Destroying everything could be one’s leisure,

But to rise like a phoenix has distinct pleasure.

~

No doubt it takes sweat to accumulate wealth,

But to spend it on needy has distinct pleasure.

~

Everyone remembers God in the worst of health,

But to pray even in good times has distinct pleasure.

~

Writing with pencil is no big deal,

But to clean up like eraser has distinct pleasure.

~

It’s easier to crush someone under your heel,

But concealing that ordeal has distinct pleasure.
