Until by Nejoud Al-Yagout. In the summer 2020 I was hiking with my son around the island Anholt in Denmark. While having a break the phone rang. It was Nejoud Al-Yagout calling from Kuwait. She had found holybooks.com and asked if I would like to post some of her works. Then she had just published the book: The Three Stages of Self in the Quran, we have it here: Link. Nejoud Al-Yagout is a muslim but she draws on teachings from a range of traditions in her books, whether they be academic or poetic. She has published a number of novels, the first one is Motorbikes and Camels, she also founded the project theinterheartinitiative.com. The book presented here is Nejoud Al-Yagout’s Until, a 22 pages poem. From the poem:
How can the world—transient—
be an object of desire,
when in You, of You, from You
this heart is on fire?
