In Sepia: A Ghazal

Welcome to my pet store in sepia
For birds, dogs and more in sepia

My parrots can talk just as you do
My mynahs you will adore in sepia

Dogs of every breed and pedigree
Playful pugs, lively labradors in sepia

If you doubt that cats have nine lives
Read once again that lore in sepia

Cats and dogs are sworn enemies
But they don’t wage a war in sepia

Bow-wows, meows make a rock band
Harmony finds a metaphor in sepia

When poetry doesn’t work in pixel
Let your art open a new door in sepia
