Since I’m going around giving poetry book recommendations, here’s another one.
Sea of Strangers by Land Leav – a book I wish I had had in hand during my first heartbreak… a book that I’ll read to our daughter one day. A book for us, girls and women.
Outtake from the book:
“Sometimes you wonder about her. That girl who is so
much like a mermaid. Who lives in the depths of the ocean,
separate from the real world. You don’t hear from her for
years at a time. And that’s when you know she is happy. She
only comes back to the surface out of loneliness or necessity.”
