As a child, Talal Salem Al Sabiri, now a 40-year old poet from the emirate of Sharjah, used to go to the sea with his father for diving and fishing trips – precious moments that inspire him in his creative activities until today. His beginnings as a poet started with music, as an  oud player with his brothers, later playing with words and rhythms.
In this episode, Talal speaks about Arabic poetry, about morning inspiration, level of consciousness, Sharjah as a culturally focused emirate, about his father, and finally how a trip to Nigeria changed the perspective.
