KHARTOUM (Sudanow) – Sudanese writer Ali Abd al-Gayoum (1943-1998 ) was a poet, film and theatre director (https://sudanow-magazine.net/page.php?subId=30&Id=1241). His following poem has been translated from Arabic by Alsir Khidir:
The rhythm of the valley
On the bosom of the naked mountain
A female caught between desire and awe.
The yellow grass undulated in the valleys of desolation,
Made harsh by the clouds,
And embraced by a season of death.
The strings of the exhausted heart played
A mysterious melody
When I behold a rainbow
In the faint expanse.
I urge the weary horses of creation to spur on;
And sing for some men and women
Who composed songs for the sun.
