Nayyirah Waheed – Salt

For my monthly book club, we recently read a beautiful book of poetry that I will forever cherish. Salt by Nayyirah Waheed is a collection of short yet powerful poems that completely took my breath away with each page.

With such few words she painted vivid images of love, loss, hope and courage. My copy of the book has practically each page earmarked, that is how good the poetry was to me.

Although I couldn’t pick out a favourite poem in this book, this one stood out to me –


I highly suggest you check out Nayyirah Waheed and her book, Salt. I’m looking forward to reading her next work, Nejma.
