Twelve Female Poets Gather for "48 Hours of Poetry"
Beautiful poetry in prose recited by soft voices flowed through the ancient house. This poetry had neither harsh sounds nor obscure meanings which allowed the words to fully penetrate the listeners. Feelings of passion, sorrow, agony, rebellion even desire were all present there that night and awakened the hearts of the poets who silently but openly revealed their presence among the audience. These two beautiful evenings grabbed our full attention and caused applause which even the cold stones of the place felt. These two beautiful evenings of female Arab poetry will be remembered by poetry-lovers not only because they listened but also because they gathered to listen.
