Mohamed Saïd Raïhani





In African Writing:

O Freedom, You are Worth Your Weight in Gold, by Malika Assal  11 (Poem)
(translated by Mohamed Saïd Raïhani)

“Hey you there, disguised between the circles of time
So mild under the crust,
I smelt your perfume in my murderer!
Like a butterfly, you hang down, broadly smiling
But when I reach out to grab you,
You withdraw back to your velvet world
And you never peep out again...


Similies for a Matchless Wandererby Essia Skhiri  11 (Poem)
(Translated by Mohamed Saïd Raïhani)

          Like doors
          Closed on the child’s secrets
          Stained with losses…
          That key which time has forgotten
          In the coat of your soul
          Is now rusty...
