Khalillulaah Khalili

Salaam !

Here you will find some Farsi/Dari poems by contemporary Afghan poets. Some of these contemporary poems are not easily accessible in print. Thus, the motivation behind creating this collection is to make a sample of these works available to the interested readers. All poems on this page are typeset using the LaTeX based package, ArabTeX.

In the course of time, I hope to add more poems and improve the quality of this selection. Your suggestions and contributions are welcome. You can visit my homepage , or send me your comments (I may not be able to send you a prompt reply, but finally I will).
