The Carrying by Ada Limón

I want to live my life through the lens of Limón’s poetry. Rooted in the very earth her fingers dig into, she writes her world like a garden full of living things that she carefully observes, naming each plant, each bird, each grief and trial and love. Moving from family issues to social ones, wanting life and watching death, her poems challenge us to see, to feel, and to soldier on: “Look, we are not unspectacular things. / We’ve come this far, survived this much. What / would happen if we decided to survive more? To love harder?” - Melinda
