Poetry Books You’ll Love

Hello friends, I’m glad you came back for a visit. Welcome to the blog today!

What’s up and happy Friday! I’m glad for the end of the week and being at the weekend mark, but for me it means chores and projects. I reckon I can’t complain because taking care of chores and adulting keeps this place humming.

Today is light fare, as I share a few poetry books that are on my list. I enjoy reading poetry and sonnets and I need to find time to add them to my “Good Reads” list. Back in the day (I can’t recall how many years ago) I purchased a book at a fare called Erotique Noire (yes it’s what you think it is). I let someone borrow it and I never saw it again, but thanks to Amazon Kindle, I read it anytime I pleased.

I loved reading those poems and short stories over and over again. Something about them peaked my interst and kept me engaged. Poetry can envoke a feeling, or represent a mood.  It can bring you out of darkness, spark a fire, and inspire creativity.  Two sentances, a paragraph or a few pages, it’s whatever you mood is and where it takes you.
