Naomi Shihab Nye

Most of Naomi’s poetry, while being read, sounded the same vocally coming from the author as it did in my mind. Her poetry is very captivating, only I feel there is too much meaning behind her sentences, which makes it a bit harder to understand. Though the intense depth of her poetry may be the goal of her works, she seems to almost stray of topic in the poems by getting too caught up in the original setting and begins to describe an abundance of irrelevant material that correlates, which in turn makes the story behind the poem vague. Don’t mean to criticize, it’s just not my style poetry.
