Ghazal – The ghazal is a form of amatory poem or ode, originating in Arabic & Persian poetry. Ghazals often deal with topics of spiritual and romantic love and may be understood as a poetic expression of both the pain of loss or separation from the beloved and the beauty of love in spite of that pain.
