Haiku Form

This spring night

United under the same

Big moon

This is my first nontraditional haiku. This time I did not follow the 5-7-5 form, that I followed in my first collection of haiku: “Travel Haiku.”

How do you prefer to write your haiku? I welcome your feedback!

Arabic Poetry Book

A few days ago, while browsing the local interest section of a bookstore, I discovered a dual language Arabic-English poetry book. The book is titled “Alienation of Violets,” written by the Bahraini poet Hameed Al-Qaed. The book contains 40 poems, which were translated into English by Al-Qaed himself.
