Borrowed from the LibraryWhen I discovered Sonia Sanchez in the library I was really excited and this was the first one I wanted to read But my break between classes is only an hour and a half long, so I decided to choose Does Your House Have Lions because it s shorter But then after getting familiar with her style, I picked this one up I enjoyed this one than Does Your House Have Lions , it s less abstract and lighthearted It s a self healing type of a book, an ode to Black women and our cult [...]

Sonia Sanchez was, until a day or so ago, merely an unknown name in a giant roll call of poets unknown, but ever since I located this book on the shelf of my public library, I have not regretted meeting her.Passionate, erotic, and delicately constructed, Sanchez s love poetry is the cream of the crop right up there with Pablo Neruda s Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.However, let us not link her to the dead or the living she is after all a poet.Sanchez, who stands on her own truly, has a [...]

Sonia Sanchez is always and forever close to my heart I love this woman Her poetry is everything to me It electrifies my body and sings to my soul These love poems and the various haikus, tanka, and sonku were lovely I especially loved the last section, In This Wet Season, that has poems dedicated to the amazing Ella Fitzgerald, Tupac Shakur, Toni Cade Bambara, Cornel West, and Gwen Brooks All of whom are amazing influential people in history Love love love Sonia Sanchez with my whole being and [...]

Despite it s silvery title, the poetry of Like The Singing Coming Off the Drums weighted heavily with Haiku and urbane tributes to the likes of Tupac Shakur and Ella Fitzgerald simply fails to resonate with this reader.

because sonia sanchez reminds us that the haiku is a poem that there can be depth and love and promise in the haiku if you re into longer pieces, shake loose my skin may be best for you but i thoroughly enjoyed this book.

One of my favorite poetry books of all time Discovered this eons ago, while probably still in high school I m in my early 30s now and it really spoke to me The haikus are short, succinct, but really strike a nerve Stay withy you all day long or in my case, years long There are so many that really tug at my heart center My favorite page 18 Tanka I thought about you The pain of not having you cruising my bones No morning saliva smiles This frantic fugue about no you Gawt damn I feel it in my bones [...]

I always feel bad that I don t enjoy poetry It can be very soothing to read though but if someone asked me to choose I will always choose novels This was the first book of poetry I read by this author and I read this in less than an hour I downloaded it from overdrive and just played down to read The first two sections I did not enjoy as a whole but the last section was my favorite It was dedicated to different people and all the poems were just beautiful to me I would love to own my own copy ju [...]

Gorgeous What else can be said Sonia Sanchez is one of my favorite poets and this book is no exception, her ability to use the fewest words possible to say so much continually blows me away Her Haiku for you has to be one of my favorite love poems Love between us is speech and breath loving you is a long river running Plus she s a scholar, an activist and a lyrical genius What s not to love

I thought this was going to be a sexy love poem book, not a bunch of corny haiku s about tongues and thighs and breaths Putting breasts in your poem does not make it deep or romantic The random poems at the end all dedicated to Tupac and Cornel West were so out of place in this collection I should have left this at the library So not for me.

3 1 2 Stars I will forever be impressed by Sanchez s ability to put so much emotion and power into such short verse While there were some shining moments in her longer poems in this collection, I found the most emotional resonance and beauty in her haikus and other short forms.

My favorite haiku in this collection what is done is donewhat is not done is not donelet it goke the wind.The love poems are flowy, some heartwrenching, with just the right melancholy tone My kind of poetry.

Most of the poems in this book are short and come in the forms of haikus and tankas I have never been a huge fan of haikus although I did enjoy some of hers, I preferred and enjoyed her longer song like poems because they pick up a greater amount of energy from one line to the next.
