rose-water syrup is a poetry collection by Maha Zimmo.
Her work looks at the intersections of being a Muslim, Palestinian, immigrant, feminist. She discusses the colonized mind, and the heart of a lover.
Sister-hood Magazine (by Kenza Saadi):”I felt all my senses come alive as I was reading through her words. It is an incredible sensation. Equally, her poetry rings with a clarity and an innocence that I have seldom seen in this age of so much pretension. Reading Maha´s poetry is a beautiful, even if sometimes heart-wrenching, voyage. Take it.”
Julie S. Lalonde (Award-winning feminist buzzkill): “Maha is a feminist, immigrant, Muslim poet and “rose-water syrup” is an absolute must. I’ve included two of my favourite poems here, but it’s 80+ pages of brilliance.”
The Muslim Vibe (by Jessica Aya Harn): “rose-water syrup is the perfect response to the greater need for Muslim creativity, as it weaves together faith, love, and an important female voice to create a masterpiece of poetry.”
