1.           What role does instinct have in writing poetry


- I’ll talk about the role instinct plays in my poetry. To some poets, it plays a little role or almost no role at all. For me, instinct plays a major role that I don’t see how I can write poetry without it. Of course, I can write a poem at will by using my writing skills and knowledge of rhythm and experience in toying with words. But this poem will never be close to my heart and I will not include it in any of my collection because it lacks this poetic instinct that gives poetry fluidity, spontaneity, and its natural essence. Sometimes, I write what I don’t understand at the moment of writing. It only makes sense to me later when it transpires in reality. I have a poem called ‘Prophet of the Poets’ in my latest collection In the Quiet of the Night. The poem angered one of my readers because he couldn’t see the connection between poetry and prophecy. In my viewpoint, prophetic instinct and poetic inspiration are both integral parts of my poetry.

Actually, i'm highly proud by your site which includes a varity of Arabic literature and civilization.Therefore, it gives me the privillege and honour to suggest a suggestion; Why don't you create a new branch for English Proverbs that aims to compare between both of the English and the Arabic civilizations and proves that lots of their wisdom and proverbs have been quoted and acquired from our Islamic and Arabic civilization, in addition that even their language includes more than 150,000 Arabic words however all their language is one million words but ours is 15 millions.i'm gonna give u an example : "Chairty begins at home",

يرجع هذا المثل الذي يدعو ان اصله انجليزي الي العصر الاسلامي من 1500 سنه: "الاقربون اولي بالمعروف" اماهم فقد نسبوا هذا المثل الي المصلح الديني الانجليزي طبعاجون ويكلف عام 1380 والدليل ان هذا النسب مغلوط اننابعام1429 هجري

You see the life of Lost People. Especially in a small city like Hong Kong, we can only bury our soul and mind in the crowds. "How often I have crossed it among the crowd" and I wonder where can I find the lights out of the darkness. "it reminded me of a gone past of an
 unfinished story..."

Dear Sayed
Hi.. greetings from South America, where your two friends Susana and Dima are talking about you. If your ear has been ringing, now you know why!
Hope you are well.

Dear Dima,

The Nadwah is missing your witty comments, insightful questions, and your enthusiastic spirit. Your reading of Neruda in Spanish and English is still echoing in our ears.

My regards to Susana and Len.

Dear Said
Thank you so much. I miss the Nadwah more than I ever thought. In fact it is one of the things I miss the most about Hong Kong. I wish we could do a Nadwah here in Caracas, but without a Sayed Gouda it is not viable! I hope you can visit us one day.  Keep up the good work.
Regards from Len
