A Peaceful Color from the Silence by Gulnar Ali Balata
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Poetry. "Gulnar Ali Balata's fourth volume of poetry, A PEACEFUL COLOR FROM THE SILENCE, is an intimate gift by a mature poet infused with love for her tattered homeland of Iraqi Kurdistan. Her pen ripples with sparkling rivers and her expectant heart wrings with sadness as she infuses her poems in shooting stars and sweet dew, as 'tears braid Fate's threads... shoulder / the coffin of [her] childhood.' The poet is 'a weaned child, ' an 'immigrant girl, ' a 'lover, ' and 'the melody for the executed.' When 'in exile... beyond the ocean... the coffins write [her] lines.' This poet insists on the possibility of a 'new page from a new sorrow / with a happy heart / Make your name in my peace / symbol of a gorgeous love's spring.' We take this journey with Balata and arrive strangely hopeful, crying tears of love for the resilience of the human spirit." Molly Lynn Watt"
