Immigrant Poets in Tukwila

I created a long beautiful poem that exposed all of the feelings that I felt when I was in Iraq. When I read the words of my poem I felt so excited, I wanted to write more and finish it.  Monia Hamam

I am Turkish, but I am from Russia. It is so difficult to live in someone else’s country.  Ruslan Gulaliyev        
My favorite poem is “Where I Am From,” I like that poem because it feels good to write about your country and where you were born and the places you have lived in. When I wrote the poem I felt like I was in my country and that feeling was amazing to feel and also it was sad to remember…..   Khalida Lomanova 
About poetry, I like the way people write poems and express themselves; how they feel, their experiences, their cultures, in any way they want. I like almost everything about poems.  Buntu Redempter
