The poem "Untitled" by Scottish poet Tom Pow is written twice in the Diwani Jali Arabic calligraphy script to create the image of a man and child, hand in hand. (See below for translation)
This piece was one of eight, commissioned by the Reels Festivals to accompany their poetry publication featuring contemporary poets from Lebanon, Syria, and Scotland. A piece was commissioned for each of the eight poets featured in the festival. In preparation for the festival, all of the poets traveled to Lebanon in order to translate each other's poems from Arabic to English and vice versa.
A man and a woman once sat down
at a bare table and looked out
at the sky. What needs to be done?
they asked, so that, in later years,
their children or their grandchildren
might ask, What shall we do today?
By Tom Pow
