Issue 61


September, 2016,

Welcome to issue 61 of the Ghazal Page!  The theme of this issue is “Time”, and no, you didn’t miss a challenge announcement.  This issue’s theme was selected on the basis of poems previously submitted.  This may happen again in the future.

The next challenge issue is “Places”, issue 63, scheduled for November 2016.  We have already received more than enough submissions for this issue, but all ghazals received before October 15 will be considered.  If your submission for issue 63 is not published therein, it may still be published in a different issue unless you tell us otherwise.  This also may happen again in the future.

Issue 61 contains 21 fine ghazals by 20 poets, including translations of two of Hafiz’ classics by Mario Petrucci, expressing widely varied aspects of “Time”.  Read, write, and enjoy!
