Poetry resonated more with me during high school and college. In fact, Weaker Than Water, a poetry collection by Katherine Gotthardt, is probably the first poetry that I’ve really connected with since I completed graduate school (and that was years ago). From Gotthardt’s first poem, I was hooked! Here are a few of my favorite lines:
“My God rides the Metro, but no one ever looks up.” – My God Rides the Metro
“Sing what is, what was, what isn’t.” – Cure
“Go peaceful little girl, into ocean again.” –For Alexis
And these are just a few amazing lines. Most of Gotthardt’s poems are simple, yet captivating. Several are made up of a single stanza and yet they pack a punch. And they seem to flow effortlessly.
