The book entitled Then The Dawn Returns is a poem on poetry, humanity, love and life. It involves 63 poems that launch the reader into a journey of reflection and profound sensation of what it is to be a human in this modern world. Perhaps the answer to that question is love, and poetry is its Ambassador, because poetry, is the only evidence of life in the Milky Way.

I chose to read Then The Dawn Returns to complete a quintet of Moroccan books for my WorldReads project and I am glad I took a chance on this self-published poetry collection. The 63 poems range from two-line flash poetry to works that run for a page or more, and Afdam ponders a variety of subjects in his thoughtful and philosophical style. Romantic love and grief are, perhaps unsurprisingly, the most prevalent topics. For me, the earlier poems felt the strongest emotionally and I particularly appreciated connecting with Hope, Eternal Inspiration, The Fallen Man and Let Us. I think Then The Dawn Returns would be a worthwhile addition to any poetry fan's virtual bookshelf (I don't know if the book is available in print or just digitally).
