Bleeding Light by Sheniz Janmohamed

By Sheniz Janmohamed

Bleeding gentle is a set of poems in ghazal shape that lines the stairs of a woman’s trip via evening. She is aware that during order to witness sunrise, she has to trip via nightfall first. all through her trip, she is stuck among West and East, faith and heresy, love and anti-love, darkness and the information of sunshine. each one couplet is an autonomous proposal and mirrored image, a pearl strung right into a necklace. Bleeding mild is fraught with opposing, stark and sometimes violent imagery seriously stimulated by means of Sufi philosophy.
