The Hurting Kind by Ada Limón

My heart, rejoice! Ada Limón’s new collection is here and with it, an emotional resonance for the complexity of living, especially through these past few years. Full of lyricism, image, and insight, her poems feel guided by this charge in The First Lesson: “My mother nailed the wing / to her studio wall. // She told me not to be / scared. I watched // and learned to watch // closely the world.” Limón’s keen observation of our interconnectedness with each other and the living world guides us through loss, joy, and profound, exquisite, everyday living.  —Melinda
