purified pages

(Poetry, ISBN:  9780557946235)

purified pages is an invitation to see the world from the perspective of one who has been on an extraordinary journey of the soul. collectively, these poems are an image of transformation, but the consistent message is one of love and redemption.  with a unique style born of a mind in which widely disparate influences mingle, al-Qãhırıï has created poems that are at once deeply personal and highly relevant.  from the aesthetic and deceptive simplicity of the earlier poems, to the tight rhythms and caustic slang of the epic “jahiliyyah,” to later poems like the scintillating “i, mujahid” and the beautiful, ironical “tetrameron,” his work sings with a uniquely talented voice that the world needs desperately to hear. Available nowin paperback at Google Books, Lulu.com and other outlets. __________________________________________________
