Unesco contender Ghazi Algosaibi has published 13 volumes of poetry in Arabic, some of which he has translated into English. Here is an example:

YEARNING

The colour of my love?

Consult the sunset.

You swim in my blood,

and pulse in my heart;

you ring in my words,

and cry in my tears.

Escape?
