Introducing Balqees

Hi. I’m Balqees Mohammed.

This is my first poetry marathon – and I’m glad to be a part of it. I plan (hope) to live up to the commitment for the 24hr marathon.

I am not a published poet – but have always loved poetry as an outlet for my thoughts and feelings – so here goes!

I’m a mother of 3 and happy grandmother of 12 – with 2 more on the way soon! Have lots of life experience to draw upon – so hopefully this experience will prove to be beneficial for me.

I enjoy reading, walking for exercise, family time and visiting cafe’s. I am an avid graphics designer with some website design and maintenance under my belt as well. As I am a practicing muslim, some of my poems may have reference to Islamic teachings and theology. Looking forward to connecting with more marathoners!
