Her Durian Sneak Peek

Hello Poetteers,

Remember Their Faces

They once gathered around me 
as I told a story as a toddler 
it feels like deja vu 
as they gather around me 
wanting to read the stories I've written 
my face is flushed red 
but I will always remember their faces 

Salaam After Prayer

Across the world
we all show up for God together 
listening to his words 
praying to ease our hearts.


Her Durian is about Islaih’s travels to Malaysia and her memories with family. These poems will make your mouth water with the different foods and dessert. It covers the topic of growing up in a multicultural home and experiences as a Muslim American.

Stay inspired,
