Singing Poetry

FullSizeRender-2

Dear All,

Do you like poetry? Do you like the music in it? The aftertaste on the tip of your tongue?

Among countless talented poets, I especially love Nayyirah Waheed. Her words are captivating and powerful. I wish I’d written them.

Here’s a poem, my absolutely favorite, from her collection Salt. Savor each word, because it carries light and truth.

Heart,

Allison
