Passionate and profound. These poems reflect a sensitive and poetic soul.

Iqra Rehman’s poems reflect an innate innocence that one attributes to an impressionable growing young person.
Her verses embody mellow dreams and mild grievances in a society which is changing so rapidly… Like other younger Pakistanis, she is disturbed over Pakistanis killing fellow Pakistanis in an endless and aimless war that began next door in the form of a revengeful invasion.
We have seen flowering of Pakistani fiction in recent times along with thoughtful media comments, but not enough has been published in the realms of English poetry. I guess Iqra’s simple and honest diction will encourage other Pakistanis to share their creativity in verse with the rest.

When poetry begins with the spirit of peace it is like a young date palm. Eventually it will feed the souls of many with the bread of the desert. So it is with the poetry of Iqra Rehman.
