Maria Atallah published her first poetry book “The Dreamer’s Call” in 2020. She is one of the winners of the Barjeel Art Foundation poetry prize 2020. Day by day, this wanderer is learning how to perceive the art around her, trust the flow, and realize that she too, is part of its eternity.
You’re taking away something that’s not yours,
For robbery isn’t just about money and jewelry.
She can still feel your hand on her back,
She can retrace your fingers on her remains,
For death’s not only a burial.
