When I was twelve
years old, my Arabic language teacher told �You are a Poet.�
I had just completed
my first poem at that time.
I walked to our
village�s post office and bravely sent some poems to the editor of
Al Ithihad newspaper, which pages I used to put in order and
distribute on foot proudly and lovingly. The rejection I got from
the editor to publish my poems only made me more persistent to
continue with my writing attempts. I kept going to the post office
and sending my work to the editor, until the day of �The First Drop
of Rain� came out; this was the title that was given to my poem.
Before long I received a call from a relative who studied in one of
the socialist countries, telling me that my poem �The First Drop of
Rain� was published in Alhadaf newspaper, which was issued by the
Popular Front. My poetry then took off in newspapers and magazines.
Ever since I was young, I ascended podiums reciting poetry in
celebrations, national events and student festivals, on Earth Day,
Labor Day and on Women�s Day�
Since 1984 write
poetry and poems are published in the various local newspapers.
