…poetry that is personal.
…poetry that makes you think.
…poetry that pulls you out of yourself.
…poetry that makes you feel heard, less alone.
…poetry that offers a new and different perspective.
…poetry that helps you step out of your day to day.
…poetry that is a doorway to something…somewhere…someone else.
The poetry we want on our shelves is not only the poetry we want to go to time and time again, but also poetry that is beautiful in form.
The lines are short and poignant, and break where they make you think.
But also, the poetry you want on your bookshelf is the poetry that is beautiful in physical form—pages you want to run your fingers over, spines you want to line up along your wall, and words that sink into the paper as much as they sink into your heart, mind, body, soul.
I want to know more about how you feel about poetry, but more important: I want to know how poetry can help us through our greatest struggles.
If you have ever found poetry you want on your bookshelf, would you have a conversation with me?
During our time, I’ll ask you about…
…What your biggest struggle, obstacle, problem, frustration is.
…How is it affecting your life?
…What are you afraid will happen if you continue down this path?
…What do you imagine is the answer/alternative to this problem?
…What would be possible then?
…What would you love to have more than anything?
