These images are screenshots of the app in progress, showcasing a single story called “A Sycamore’s Psalm” by donia salem harhoor. The story, set on the Perkiomen Trail, takes the form of a series of poems through the voice of a young girl reflecting in a notebook. Exploring care-giving, family dynamics, loss, and roots of every kind, young Nehet – named after a tree – journeys through a diasporic legacy of Egypt, both ancient and contemporary, while encountering the history of the Perkiomen Creek in this gathering of lyric verse honoring loved ones present and past.
