Naomi Shihab Nye: Very rarely do you hear anyone say they write things down .

Naomi Shihab Nye: Very rarely do you hear anyone say they write things down and feel worse. It’s an act that helps you, preserves you, energizes you in the very doing of it. Krista Tippett, host: You are living in a poem. Ms. Shihab Nye: Before you know what kindness really is, you must lose things,, feel the future dissolve in a moment, like salt in a weakened broth. What you held in your hand,, what you counted and carefully saved,, all this must go so you know, how desolate the landscape can be, between the regions of kindness.

Bought this for my mother who doesn't ever "understand" poetry. I read the entire thing as soon as I peeked in it. I cried. I laughed. I thought of friends and family and I thought of myself. Very relatable for ANYONE and none is over your head if not used to reading poetry. Will stay on my bookshelf. Ordered my mother another copy. Lol

A very fine poet. I had thought I'd be reading a whole book of Naomi Shihab Nye's poetry. Instead, she curated this collection. A worthy effort including poetry from around the world, relative to Loss.

I read this book in 9th grade and the poems resonated so deeply with me that I had certain lines in my head for years. I finally bought the book over 10 years later when I needed the comfort of words again to help me with a difficult loss. Will always be one of my favorite books.

Need to read it for school - seems like it would be great poetry!

Yojin
Great read and best price I could find. Highly recommended.

I bought it thinking she'd written the poems but she selected them. At first I was going to return the book, but then I ended up liking a lot of the poems.

I love this collection from various poets.

Everyone can relate to at least one of the poems in this book. The author takes a common thread (loss) and puts it between the cover of a very well compiled book. This is a wonderful book to have in your collection!
