About DreamsPoetry by Nahida Izzat Salem-News.com
They come alive
(LONDON) - From the womb of agony
Dreams are born
Sweet and pure
We nourish and groom
And watch them grow
After living in us
They come alive
Before we know it
We start living in them
Special thanks to Uprooted Palestinians
_________________________________Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.
She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles, and Palestine the True Story.
Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.
If you like poetry and are intrigued by the notion of learning more about Palestine, you can visit Nahida's blog Poetry for Palestine for more of her writings; prose, poems, letters and dialogues. You can write to Nahida : email@example.com
