This poem is dedicated to Nahid Walizadda, my editorial collaborator and friend from Peshawar, Pakistan:

Somewhere across
The River Indus
A girl dreams
Of a bright future.

Scraps of paper
Pens and brushes
Words and forms,
She births many.

Her immense talent
The force of her will
Veils and boundaries
She shatters with skill.

A mind full of ideas
A heart full of love
A voice that speaks
Of harmony and peace.

Somewhere across
The River Indus
Basking in moonlight
There is Nahid.
