THE BEAUTY OF SOMALIA’S POETRY – LADAN OSMAN

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, its East Africa month and I will be a bit partial to Somalia for obvious reasons. With the turmoil and war and uncertainty in the air, we have their poetry coming from the lips of Ladan Osman to console us and make us be at peace with the world again.

Not only did she win the Sillerman Prize for African Poetry for her ‘The Kitchen Dweller’s Testimony but has continue to throb our hearts with lines from her beautiful collections.
