There is a particular draw to hawd; its the poet haven

It WAS a poet heaven long time ago around the time of the European colonial rule but not now. I lived in Hawd countryside for about three years when I was a kid and have fond memories of its incredibly lush and beautiful landscape. However, that region suffered prolonged droughts and environmental degradation and is now almost a desert. A lot of nomads left their way of life behind and moved into the villages, towns, and cities. Others took advantage of the agricultural programmes promoted by the Jigjiga administration and settled down to become farmers. Even the once feuding sub-clans of the OG and Habro were forced by necessity to corporate for their survival and as a result now wander freely into each other's territories even sharing their water in difficult times.

Interesting insight Tallaabo. appreciate it. where is the new poet haven you would say? Or such places are extinct

I think today's centres of Somali poetry are the major urban areas with significant Somali populations in and outside the Horn of Africa.
