Poetry at Work Day is today, let’s honor all the amazing poems that have been brought into the world. Poetry books are a special way to hear the narratives of those who have something to share through experience or in a metaphorical light. 2022 has new poetry collections being released soon. Here are five sneak peeks.
1. The Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson Volume 8 by Emily Dickinson
If you enjoy the amazing poet Emily Dickinson, enjoy volume 8 of her collection. Her poems reflect loneliness, love of nature, and have some 17th-century puritan beliefs. Her poems are deceptive in their simplicity and have the strength of the themes of 19th Century American literature. Dive into the classics.
2. Unfinished Yet Whole by Reyana Joy
This is Joy’s debut collection that has deep pain. The root of these poems is finding balance– between helplessness and hope, nostalgia, and new adventures. The upcoming narrative is when you are at your lowest point, you can come back home, stronger, wiser, and more powerful.
3. Bless the Daughter Raised by a Voice in Her Head by Warsan Shire
This amazing collection was created by a Somali British poet who collaborated with Beyonce’s Lemonade and Black is King. Warsan Shire has a full-length collection that is about migration, womanhood, trauma, and feminism. It starts off with a young girl who has no guidance by any nurturing force as she stumbles into womanhood.
4. Unlock Your Storybook Heart by Amanda Lovelace
This is the third and final installment to Lovelace’s You are Your own Fairytale poetry collection. This feminist series is about being so caught up in the perfectionist world. You tend to miss out on the raw and true real honesty of the world. Let’s be honest and start to enjoy the life of enchantment. If you haven’t read her other two collections I highly recommend them. You’ll be reading a fairy-like tale with a punch of feminism and reality.
5. Home Body by Rupi Kaur
This reflective and intimate collection is a journey that visits the past, present, and the possible future of the self. These poems consist of raw, honest conversations with yourself. Fill up on poetry that gives love, acceptance, change, family, and community.
