LoveAThon Poetry

Hello Poetteers,

Here is where I feel comfortable. This is my favorite part. Book spine poetry.


From Beirut to Jerusalem

A book thief
a kite runner
spending mornings in Jenin

Her olives
sought the wind.

---

Does my head look big in this
a veil of roses?
Keeping faith
say what you will.


Love, Fida

Love both your poems! Especially the first one. Feels faraway if that makes sense.

I love the first poem! If a book was written based on it, I feel like it would be be rich in culture. :)
