A Ghazal in the Persian and Turkish Traditions of the Thirteenth through Fifteenth Century
Presented at Ruby Joust, Barony of Caer Mear, 2019, for the Poeta Atlantiae competition.
In 2018 my friend Ishmael Reed became Poeta Atliantiae, and somehow managed to convince me to start writing poetry again. The Fire of the Hunt was the result. I entered it into my first-ever bardic and poetry competitions at Trial By Fire 2018, and somehow managed to win both.
