It‘s no longer for academics and intellectuals. Poetry belongs to us all. We all have a right to it.” #yrsadaleyward #nationalpoetrymonth

I didn‘t become a writer but, yes, reading books 📖 had been my escape from reality... when real life was just too much... it‘s nice to get away from real life sometimes (or most of the time 😂) and just immerse yourself in another world. 🦄 🧚🏼‍♀️🧞‍♂️🧜🏼‍♀️🧝🏼‍♂️🧙🏼‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧛🏼‍♀️ ~~~~

This makes me think of all how well intentioned Americans sent supplies of clothing, rice, eggs, etc. to countries in Africa based off of commercials of other Americans pleading for help....We Are The World type of help. Though there have been changes to these forms of aide they caused more harm to local economies to good. I wonder if “she does not belong to you” refers to how the US feels responsible for other countries.#poetrychallenge2018

Erin7 Will the US reap a negative relationship with countries that it has taken on as pet projects? What do you think? 1y

This poem makes me think of the Japanese tea ceremony. It‘s a beautiful way to describe the act of writing in and of itself as the focus in lieu of the final product. Writing is more often described as this brutal process, while this takes a more nurturing approach.

I‘m learning that Waheed‘s work is minimalist in the use of words to get to a point. I‘m curious though why she doesn‘t make use of capitalization. #poetrychallenge2018

Lindy Lots of modern poets forego the use of capitalization and they probably have different reasons for this stylistic choice. As a poetry reader, I find it easier to get absorbed by the rhythm and sound of words when they are not bound by the conventional grammatical structure of prose. 1y
Erin7 @Lindy Thanks for that. Helps put this into perspective. I‘m still very new but enthusiastic poetry reader at this point. 1y

This is my first poem for the #poetrychallenge2018 . What a great point this makes about why we travel. Do we travel for the sake of new experiences or for the sake of showing others where we have been? Or maybe we take pictures in an effort to hold on to those experiences? I love to take photos but don‘t mind not having the camera. There are other ways to hold onto those moments. Sketching, journaling, making new friends to name a few.

I really liked this collection of poetry.

Yrsa: “Salt is a beautiful collection of poetry. The author wrote it for people of color, and I find so much strength in it. I love things that are rich in imagery and magic. Poetry is absolutely having a moment right now. I think it has to do with social media and how shareable it makes poetry. It‘s no longer for academics and intellectuals. It belongs to us all, we all have a right to it.”

Erin7 I‘m jumping all over this bandwagon. Thanks for the hashtag. And I agree that social media is making a difference on getting the word out on current poets. Spoken word has also increased in mainstream popularity which I think helps. (edited) 2y
Erin7 My library order led this book and I get to pick it up this weekend hopefully. I‘m excited this looks really interesting. 2y
huongtra I thought the whole cover is white lol until I see the word salt at the end 😅 13mo

Instead of reading last night, I fashioned this bad boy for #TBRBingo! I haven't set a timeline for finishing, but it will be handy for choosing new books to start. And I will definitely be buying a new book for every bingo! Thanks for the inspiration, @WhatDeeReads!

TheWordJar @BarbaraTheBibliophage It was great to look over my shelves and pick out the books I really want to read. I didn't want to leave anything to chance, and with so many books to choose from, I decided on no free space! 😱 2y
