This morning the red sun is opening like a rose on our white wall, prints there the fishbone shadow of a fern. The early blackbirds fly guilty from a dawn haul of fallen fruit.

Nothing gold can stay. Love poetry? Sign up to the Friday Poem for a poem, every Friday, straight to your inbox.

Not the romantic sort, but poems that honor the deep connection and heartfelt respect for the subjects of these poems. Sometimes grateful, other times searching, Nye's poems are, at all times, mindful conversations with people, places, and events that have accompanied her on her journey thus far.

I enjoyed reading this book because I felt like the feelings and stories where realistic and very intriguing. The most enjoyable part for me was when they talked about peace and loving the world. Another thing I enjoy The book is about many different stories combined together. Another thing I enjoyed was that they kept the short stories with similar topics together and how they created a picture in your mind about what was happening just by using their words.
Although I did enjoy parts of the book I was not a huge fan of it. The stories where to short and it seemed as if the book left almost all the short stories on cliffhangers which I do not like.
