Poem ☁ Through the Eyes of a Raven (II)

My late father Maher Abdullah (Allâh Yirĥamu) was amongst those who encouraged me to consider writing poetry seriously instead of merely secreting them away in the lonely confines of folders on my computer.

Through the Eyes of a Raven was the first poem my Dad (Allâh Yirĥamu) constructively criticised, which I wrote in April 2003.

Sadly, he wasn’t able to read the outcome, which never would’ve been possible without his constructive critique and valuable input.
