About the poet
My name is Iman Hamid. I’m a British Kurdish living in London. I have inherited my passion from my maternal family as my maternal grandfather was a poet and he has many Poetry books in Iraqi Kurdistan’s libraries.
I have been writing short stories and poems since 2000 but started posting them publicly in 2015. Since then I have created a good connection with other fellow poetess and poetry lovers.
You can follow Iman on Instagram, where she uses the pen name Praying Hand.
About the poem
This poem is a way of looking at our situation and hardships in a different way through the little things we view in life.

egg yolk and egg white that have
been seperated from one another
and burnt out at different heat…
