New Day


New Day

At first light, I wake up to a new day
ready to get up with the dew, day.

On TV, the news misconstrues, day
weeding out the fake news that’s untrue, day.

Stymied, I could use a breakthrough day
something to help me make do, day.

I feel like I’m stuck in a queue, day
the feeling is like deja vu, day.

Feeling down, you’re the one I turn to, day
you tell me you’re coming to woo, day.

I impatiently wait to see you, day
with you, it won’t be a blue day.

The calendar tells me it’s Tuesday
he’s here, so I bid you adieu, day.

We are trying a ghazal today at dVerse~Poets Pub. A new form for me.

  1. Love the theme here Bekkie and it does really tumble along beautifully. The refrain is only required every second line of the couplets ( except first couplet where you use it on both lines) so you have enough material here now for two ghazals 😉 Thanks for playing.

    1. Funny you say that, Paul. I was using the examples at the pub and ended up copying both. I like to write rhyme so I went crazy with it. It was fun to write.

      I was just getting into writing weekly again when I got sick. Not the flu, but a bad head cold with a low fever. I can’t even ride my bike right now. I’m feeling better today so will be back to write again soon! I do enjoy reading and writing with everyone!


  2. Nice sound and flow. I find a ghazal challenging because of the repetition. I think you handled it well. I liked this phrase: “the fake news that’s untrue, day” and the use of “news” to fit the rhyme pattern.
