The two-hour session was moderated by the poet and journalist Eida Bin Masoud at the Jamia Theater in Dibba, where the poetry evening was accompanied by an oud played by the artist Hazza Al-Dhanhani.
The session shed light on a number of poetic styles, the most prominent of which was the poetry of tafilah, and it dived into different seas and weights of poetry, and its topics varied between the social aspect that simulates reality and emotional spin, seeing stories of love and nostalgia.
A number of poems were recited in the evening, the most famous of which is the poem “A Coincidence and a Whisper of Nostalgia and I Miss You” by the poet Muhammad Saeed Al-Dhanhani, where feelings of love appeared in the poet’s vocabulary clearly, and Al-Dhanhani was able to subjugate the language and force it to transmit ideas and feelings through beautiful poetic images that touch the conscience and celebrate the place and perpetuate time.
As for the poet Awad bin Hasum Al-Darmaki, he recited the oaks poem and the school trips, and another poem in which he recalled his memories in the city of San Diego from his collection (Memories of San Diego), in addition to many poems that carried beautiful poetic images and verses of eloquence and depth and met with wide public resonance.
