A horse and a poem
by Sendoo Hadaa

I am proud that I have a poem
He is like horse’s eyes
Warmth and deep feeling

Perhaps this last pride —-
I riding him I traveled
The whole world

The following is a poem I wrote in standard Arabic. I felt a pinch not reading anything in Standard Arabic on the show. So maybe we could have it on the site.”
