“Receiving God’s Messages Every Night,” the first poetry book by the Belgium-based Moroccan poet, Nabil Ankoush, and published by “Makhtootat” for Publishing, Netherlands, is a group of texts written by the poet over a period of 3 years, in 96 pages. Its cover was designed by Nasser Mo’nes, the Iraqi poet and artist.
It contains 70 poems, some of which thoughtby some criticsto bedark in content…but the poet considers “darkness to be a fundamental constituent of this world, full of deceitful white. And that a person could see in the depth of darkness what could not be seen in light.”
Passages are diving into the self, and into the depth of the question of the identity of life and death.
