Joy In The Fleeting Moments

Haneen Khalid

Haneen Khalid wrote this poem sitting outside a 400-year-old mosque in Lahore, Pakistan. There, she discovered that the ordinary and extraordinary are one and the same.

The Fount of Immortality

Haneen Khalid

This poem-story is free-verse writing about the yearning in every human being to find their way home. It is about the yearning and the subsequent search that many of us spend lifetimes pursuing. Like the wandering itself, the poem-story is intended to mean different things to different readers, but most of all, I hope they walk away understanding that they are not alone.
