About this deal

what if timing and space was just an excuse that we used to separate two hearts that beat simultaneously.

Sometimes with poetry, I have seen that authors focus too much on the language sounding pretty but they don’t say anything (at least that I can understand as a person reading for entertainment without deconstructing each line which is what some of the poets want, it just is not my favorite form of poetry so my opinion is a little bias). I listened to this on audio narrated by the author herself but want to read a physical copy to experience the poems with the artwork.She uses a variety of poem lengths, all in free verse, to tell multiple stories about life, both negative and positive.

No matter where you are in your journey, Home will revitalize your soul and help you make peace with your bees.If there's any narrative to the selection, consider it a happy ending: the weeping princess is being saved - by herself. In both of these books the same thing was repeated over and over again - poems about airplanes, about clothes, about stars. I know that the poems are not identical, but they are about the same thing - empathy, and that's why when reading these two books I had a sense of boredom and déjà vu - after all, I've already read somewhere about how empathy can be bad!

And that is the most beautiful message that we can get, that a better future is inside us, not somewhere else. I'm falling in love with poetry more and more as the time passes and, as I follow Whitney on TikTok for some time now, I absolutely adore her poetry and her way of playing with words and expressing emotions. It imparts the process of healing through the interactions between a woman and her bees, with four sections titled Losing, Lost, Flying and Home. After 270 pages I wanted to give up and put this book aside, but I don't like not finishing books because maybe it will get better at the end after all, however, I found myself scrolling faster and faster from chapter to chapter, just really bored.

The message is beautiful, of course, it’s about heartbreak and healing, but I feel like this wasn’t it.

The poems are written in a Rupi Kaur-esque way, but instead of enjoying 5-10% of the poems in Kaur's bundles, the poems in Hanson's "Home" resonated/moved/intrigued me about 40-50% of the time.If you’re writing about airplanes in this book six times, AND six times in another - how I will not be bored? interpreting emotions is hard sometimes; it’s okay if you need someone else’s words to understand how you feel”. It is a very good book with beautiful poetry and I read it every day a bit and I could feel that it helped me in the process of healing.
