9780679644057Poetry is one genre I have almost no experience reading yet it’s so beautiful with descriptions of every day activities that leave one with goosebumps despite how ordinary the subject of the detailed descriptions may be.  Today I listened to Billy Collins’ Aimless Love and enjoyed many of the poems.  I do have to say, my favorite was “Reader” and came before any of the real life poems- more of an introduction.  I also adored “Litany” but I feel that is primarily due to this cutie!  I need to explore more poetry in 2014 because I do not really have a background in it at all and I want to change that.
