Practical Love Poems

February 5, 2011

“I like love poems written by practical people,” I just said, to a friend. Meaning… I like the same kinds of love poems as I like love stories. I love the things that capture love in ordinary moments. Tenderness, friendship, companionship. No matter where my own head and heart are, I like to read, and hear stories about love that lets real life in. The same goes for poetry. (That said, I keep forgetting to read Rumi when I’m actually in love.)

Women’s Voices For Change posted two by Millicent Borges Accardi yesterday that capture the kind of writing I like best. The sexiness is in the details.

Go read!
