Escape

The following poem is written in the form of a GHAZAL, which consists of five to fifteen couplets, usually on the subject of love, loss, praise etc. Traditionally, the first two lines rhyme, and the final word of each couplet are a repeat of the last word of the first couplet. Each line is in the same metre, and no enjambement should exist between the couplets.

A cottage full of oaken beams.
Look and behold, here come the dreams.

We gaze and think, how much is this,
A house of stone, subject of dreams?

For city folk, escape’s the aim,
A cherished hope; fulfil our dreams.

But is it truth, this wish to run
Away from smoke, satisfy dreams.

We are in love , the plan is set,
We make our move, realise dreams.
