Desiring Light: Poems and Reflections
Desiring Light is Ameera Aslam’s first collection of poetry & prose. They are about traversing the spiritual path in modern times, grief, hope and God’s Overflowing Mercy.
“The outward tranquility of those who are seeking a spiritual path is something that many wish they could also embrace. But this tranquility does not tell the inner struggles that take place because the spiritual seekers do their work on the inside. Ameera Aslam’s poems reflect this journey.” – Humera Khan An-Nisa Society, London
