I started Friday Fives back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to Friday Fives instead to have more room for topics.
Since the start of the new year, I’ve been reading more poetry. I have quite a collection of poetry books, some I’ve read, some I haven’t, and some that I’ve only read selections of. Here are the ones that I’m planning on reading (or re-reading) in the coming months.
So, I did start reading this one back in February (I think), and yes, I’m still reading it. Audre Lorde’s collection of poems is just so rich and beautiful, and it deserves the time to sit with some of them. Drink it slowly link wine.
This one was recommend to me many years ago, and I’ve had it on my shelf for a while. A journal of poems and spiritual meditations recorded over decades by a peacemaker (Secretary-General of the UN).
I absolutely love Jericho Brown! And his previous poetry collections have been amazing, so I’m excited to get to read his latest collection.
I’ve read so many of Emily’s poems in the past but have never gone her entire collection. Let’s see if I can get all the way through!
This is one that I read through for a grad class and would like to revisit to give it the time it deserves.
Happy Reading Darlings!
