dc.description.abstract Poetry holds the ability to touch on very specific moments in a person’s life. Unlike a novel, poetry tells you stories in little moments and images. There is no “Once upon a time…” or “They all lived happily ever after.” Yet, strung together, these little moments can form a longer story. That’s why I believe poetry can be so impactful. In a collection of poetry, a person will always be able to find one poem or just one line, even, that takes them back and makes them feel something. In my own collection, How Does Your Garden Grow?, I reflect on my own life and in this process, I talk about themes such as: death, family, grief, mental health, childhood, growing up, love, letting go, and self love – among others. I take a look at the people and events that shaped me as a person and I end on a girl, just about to graduate college, looking forward towards the future. I hope that somewhere in this poetic journey through my own life, someone is able to find solace or maybe even hope. I hope this collection makes someone feel less alone. At least, I hope someone gets one of my lines stuck in their head all day. en_US
