Saudi poet and Advisor to the Ministry of Communication and Information, Mohammed Abes, released his new poetry collection “Qibla of the World…Songs of Earth and Human” in collaboration with the Abha Literary Club and Dar al-Intishar Publishing, Lebanon.

The 125-page collection includes patriotic poems dedicated to different regions in the Kingdom and covers several phases of Abes’ journey. Most of these poems weren’t published before, and some were turned into songs.

The collection documents historic sites, mountains, and touristic regions in the different Saudi cities the poet visited and lived in. Mohammed Abes’ previous collections and books include “Fruits of woman, Bread of man”, “More than a Memory”, and “Isolation Texts”.
