You may be surprised at what you learn. This post really interested me and demonstrated what you claim writing poetry gave you- clarity! I write both poetry and prose but increasingly the qualities you list as derived from poetry, have come to dominate, as well as the one added-rhythm, hopefully subtle, but evocative of the way in which language echoes what it conveys.

So self-publishing in my case has been the inevitable consequence as poetry journals do not ever consider narrative poetry, nor novella length work! What are some of the poetry book titles you have self-published and what platform are you using?


  • The World of Haiku!
  • La chambre des ombres glacées (Poche) (French Edition).
  • Remember Muckadilla: People, Properties, Businesses and Sporting Events.
  • Writing: How Poetry Helped My Prose.
  • Ewald Tragy (Italian Edition)!
  • The Big D.

Changing Track

However, this is what I will be using: Thank you for writing this article about poetry and the multiple ways it can benefit reader and writer alike. While not published in other genres I also write fiction and non-fiction. In that sense writing cross-genre is like cross-training!! Poems help me expand on things that are so seemingly simple and express them with the complexity that is real and true to me and to many of us. Sometimes just talking about something does not accurately represent how you felt or what it meant to you. Poetry helps me to do this.

I like to think of fiction as very horizontal—a story moves along in a linear fashion. But I like to think of poems as vertical—they can delve deep into a single topic or thought. Kudos to you for self-publishing.

    Most poets today are still stuck several years behind fiction writers—an attachment to print and literary magazines prevails. But there are so many opportunities for self-published poets right now a couple things that come to mind are videos of poem readings and audio books narrated by the poet themselves. I expect a lot more poets to start making the switch in the next years as self-publishing expands as a viable alternative, and poets start seeing the profitability and expanded outreach potential.

    I wish you all the best with your own endeavors! How is this going for you? Funny that you mention poem readings and audio books. I would like to create an audio book for my poems as well as record some readings, possibly video recordings. Plus there are more stories about breakout self-published fiction and non-fiction writers than self-published poets. Enjoy and share with a friend.

As the reader, you can really feel the writers passion for what she does through her pieces. After reading this story, I believe this book would be better appropriate for an other audience.

    I really found it hard for myself to stay interested. Although I could relate and found some of her pieces very beautiful, the book never was rather slow for my taste. I found it hard to follow because some of the poems didn't make sense to me and were a bit all over the place with their meaning.

    Forms of Writing: Poem, Drama & Prose - Differences, Fun & Educational Activities for Children

Nov 02, Nicole Perez rated it really liked it Shelves: From an adult's perspective, I found this book of poems to be both profound and sweet; very telling in how Nye explores relationships, love, war, Earth, memories, communication and the very nature of humans.

    Interesting how she also weaves in the role of animal and insect communication, and her voice alone suggests a very one-ness that we have with other beings. Lots of political and religious ideas , and personal experiences from Nye throughout.

    Gave me a better sense of who she is as a person and an artist poetry, after all, is a very personal art. I like how she alternates back and forth between verses and prose. Love her style as well. Lots of great literary elements in use, great ideas, thoughtful way of looking at ourselves.

    Specifics I found many of her poems to be insightful and beautiful, and some lines really stuck with me. I think every poem and piece of prose in this collection is very beautiful in its own way. I like Nye's intelligence, and how she sees the world. For My Desk pg 22 "each morning birds speak first" Curriculum: Middle school and high school students can find something very special in this collection, if not in a particular poem. Very teachable moments in this book, and they can bring about profound moments of understanding ourselves as people, communicators, artists, leaders and as a race; great discussions for class.

    We could especially discuss current events and the war in Iraq, and Nye's poems could be one of many pieces of literature by many writers who think about the middle east and the things happening today. Jul 03, Carmyn rated it really liked it Shelves: The inside flap of the book says, "In eighty-two poems and paragraphs, Naomi Shihab Nye alights on the essentials of our time--our loved ones, our dense air, our wars, our memories, our planet--and leaves us feeling curiously sweeter and profoundly soothed.

    I tend to prefer poetry anthologies rather than books in which Honeybee: I tend to prefer poetry anthologies rather than books in which all the poems are by one author. I find that there is a wee bit of disappointment in realizing that an author can't be brilliant with every poem. I am never sure the ratio that makes the book "good" for me.. I find I love a few poems in every book.. In this book these are my favorites: This was a book of poems I liked quite a bit.

    You can read excerpts-the first 45 pages-here: Mar 12, Sara Baker added it Shelves: Summary This book is full of a collection of poems and stories.

Responses I gave this book a two star rating because I felt that at times the book was hard to follow. I really liked some of the poem however, but others were slow. This book made me feel happy at times. For example, when Naomi helped the Indian lady calm down was very inspiring.

    I feel that more people need to reach out and help others in need. This short story definitely portrayed that. Classroom Connection This book could be used when teaching children about poems. Not everyone knows that poems do not all have to rhyme. Having children read this book can also show them to appreciate the little things in life like honeybees. Also, it teaches children to be more kind and understanding like in the example I spoke about above. CCSS Range I was unable to find the book's lexile however, I believe this book would be a good book for a teacher to read to fourth graders.

Oct 23, Cody rated it it was amazing Shelves: Honybee is not just one story; it is a collaboration of poems and short stories. The majority of the poems have to do with bees; however there is a few that differ. There are also poems about her living in America as an Arab-American and the difficulties, political poems. Honeybee is not just a short book of poems; they all intertwine and have a deeper meaning.

    I chose to give this book a 5 star rating. This book is very versatile and can be used in almost any classroom, from the youngest grades to college. The poems can be read allowed to young children or broken down by older college students and analyzed. I do not usually prefer to read poetry, however I did enjoy this book, and it was my favorite of the poetry selection.

    This book leads itself to many different classroom options; however my favorite one is in the reading subject. This book can be used to introduce the poetry category of books, especially to younger children. I could not find the lexile or guided reading, however this book could be used with any students. If it were a read by yourself, id suggest 5th and up. Honeybee by Naomi Shihab Nye is a collection of 82 poems and vignettes based on her life, all while circling back to the theme of Honeybees.

    These stories and poems really puts you in the moment and I felt like I was walking in someone's home mistaking it for a museum, or listening to a little girl talk especially in the current day and ag Honeybee by Naomi Shihab Nye is a collection of 82 poems and vignettes based on her life, all while circling back to the theme of Honeybees. These stories and poems really puts you in the moment and I felt like I was walking in someone's home mistaking it for a museum, or listening to a little girl talk especially in the current day and age , and walking my dog down the street.

    These three were very interesting as they all brought up deeper concepts, but do not go too in depth. I did enjoy the majority of the poems, but her politics were a bit too over the top for my personal taste. I cannot see all of these poems being used in a classroom, or at least not until late middle school years. I also feel that some of the poems do need a bit of context behind them that as an adult, I have, but a child may not.

    That being said, I do like that this book shows that poetry does not have to be all about rhyming or silly ideas - it can be about serious topics and poetry can be used as a way to express oneself and their opinions.
