However, he adds that for poetry to become an "everlasting river" for any writer, the writer must be able to "carry the shovel of his culture, dig into the ground and plough through the fertile soils of language, and reach the springs within them that converge into the river of poetry."
As for Al-Souhaih, poetry seems to be the only creative outlet he is entirely devoted to.
"I attempted writing novels and plays, but I didn't have the passion to succeed. Perhaps it was because I lacked the tools to work in those fields so that I couldn't continue," he says.
Throughout his journey, Al-Souhaih has held onto one crucial habit – reading.
"Reading is the main source that nourishes the well of talent, ensuring its continuous flow. But it can create a mental barrier to writing poetry, too."
"Poets must maintain their sensitivity, ensuring that the infusion of cultural knowledge into a poem doesn't overshadow its poetic core. After all, poetry begins where knowledge ends."
Fans of Al-Souhaih will soon be able to catch him on television again, on the new cultural channel Al-Thaqafeyah.
He previously presented a programme titled You Are the People, where he interviewed Saudi poets from various generations.
"The new programme involves preparing and presenting episodes about an elite group of Arab poets from pre-Islamic times to the modern era. It will be aired on a new cultural channel launching in Saudi Arabia in September, as part of the MBC network," he says.
Al-Souhaih says that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has "transformed into a dynamic cultural hub that reflects the magnitude of the massive cultural changes that the country is witnessing at the moment."
"At the same time, it communicates the new cultural strategy adopted by the Ministry of Culture based on the vision of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. May God protect and preserve him."
He adds: "The Ministry has established associations for each cultural sector, with the number of these associations announced reaching approximately sixteen professional associations across many non-profit cultural sectors. Among them is the Literature Association, which serves as an umbrella for literature and writers in Saudi Arabia, similar to writers' unions in some Arab countries.
"Additionally, the ministry has opened the door to obtaining permits for launching cultural associations on a social level."
He further explains: "The ministry's cultural vision has changed from the traditional one, limiting cultural activities to an evening of poetry, short stories or novels, or mere critical seminars aimed at the educated elite.
"Instead, it has embraced popularising culture and an openness to all contemporary civilisational achievements at the cultural level. It has worked on global cultural awareness, and attempted to make Saudi society known to the world through all forms of artistic expression, such as fashion, Saudi cuisine, music, folk singing, and more – all without society losing its authentic heritage and identity."
As for Al-Souhaih, he is most looking forward to the launch of the Saudi Literature Association – under which he will oversee several activities – as well as spearheading his upcoming television programme.
