2 amazing books of poetry

Different HoursDifferent Hours by Stephen Dunn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 2000 and it is worthy of the prize in any year. Beautiful, raw, honest, hopeful without ignoring reality, these poems spoke to me in a way many writers, poets or otherwise, haven't before. Very highly recommended.

House of LightHouse of Light by Mary Oliver

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Mary Oliver's poems are always beautiful, carefully observations of nature. Many of these poems focus on birds - herons, crows, kingfishers, kookaburras - and other animal life she observes near water. These observations become meditations, and find deep questions from the everyday life that surrounds us. Highly recommended.
