Read full description of the books:
"This Same Sky" is a collection of poems selected by Naomi Shihab Nye. This book full of poems really made me get into reading poetry. I love how the author picks the most beautifully written poems. This book does not have a story line or structure, but instead creative language that within itself is a story. For me, a reader, it is hard for me to pay attention to story lines, but I am great at picturing scenarios and scenery, therefore I enjoy poetry so much.
An example of beautifully written text is a poem called "Companion" written by Manjush Dasgupta,"I said, I won't read Butterflies do not read Rivers do not nor does the ocean Even the stars do not read. Mummy said, I read Your grandpa reads So does your father And millions of other people Why would you remain different? I said, I would play Play with the paper boats on the stream Stars would decorate them. Now Mummy is no more Father is away I am sick I read and only read. Books are Brooks to me."I love how to every poem there is a hidden message in the play of words. Like people say written words are a creative act in itself. What I love with poetry and only poetry is that the writer can really make you feel with all those words and how unique that feeling holds into you. The author(s) really make you 'feel' it, and 'see' it.
I conclude that I loved this book very much, I and enjoy feeling the words of the authors. Although this was not a proper book, but more of a combinations of poems, I do really mean to give it 5 stars.
