The Ghazal Poetry Writing Project examines a Turkish/Arabic poetic form consisting of five or more couplets with each line possessing an identical meter. Ghazal (pronounced "guzzle") has a unique rhyming structure where the first couplet rhymes and thereafter the last word, or couple of words, from the end of the second line of the first couplet is repeated at the end of the second line of each following couplet. Each couplet should be a complete sentence or series of sentences and should not continue into the next couplet.
