Book Shelf: The Year of the Blue Water by Yanyi

The Year of the Blue Water by Yanyi

This is a Yale Series of Younger Poets book that I came across while pulling holds at the library. The title and cover caught my attention.

One of my favorite pieces from the collection:

“Form gives space for something to exist. You have to dig in yourself to find what you’ll put in it. Places you don’t know appear. Poems are a way to ask for what exists, to invite what wants to be visible.”
