81. Naomi Shihab Nye - Kindness
naomi shihab nye from The Words Under the Words Selected Poems home quotes music recipes weblog book reviews.
Before you know what kindness really is
you must lose things,
feel the future dissolve in a moment
like salt in a weakened broth.
What you held in your hand,
what you counted and carefully saved,
all this must go so you know
how desolate the landscape can be
between the regions of kindness.
How you ride and ride thinking the bus will never stop, the passengers eating maize and chicken will stare out the window forever. Before you learn the tender gravity of kindness, you must travel where the Indian in a white poncho lies dead by the side of the road. You must see how this could be you, how he too was someone who journeyed through the night with plans and the simple breath that kept him alive. Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside

Born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1952 to an American mother and a Palestinian father, poet Naomi Shihab Nye seems able to feel at home almost anywhere in the world. She lived in old Jerusalem for a time, and then settled in San Antonio, Texas. For the U.S. Information Agency, Ms. Nye promoted international goodwill through the arts on assignments to the Middle East and Asia. She assimilates the voices of her Mexican American neighbors into her work, as well as the perspectives of Arab Americans. Naomi Shihab Nye calls herself a "wandering poet."
She was just seven years old when her first poem was published. She has gone on to create many collections of poetry, including Different Ways to Pray; Hugging the Jukebox; Yellow Glove; Red Suitcase; Fuel; Come With Me; Words Under the Words: Selected Poems ; and A Maze Me.
Nye specializes in poetry that takes inspiration from small things and everyday events. She has a long-standing habit of keeping a notebook "because I wanted to remember everything. The quilt, the cherry tree, the creek. The neat whop of a baseball rammed perfectly with a bat. My father's funny Palestinian stories."
Nye also gives people who find poetry intimidating something to think about in the ALAN review:
"Anyone who feels poetry is an alien or ominous force should consider the style in which human beings think. "How do you think," I ask my students. "Do you think in complete, elaborate sentences? In fully developed paragraphs with careful footnotes? Or in flashes and burst of images, snatches of lines leaping one to the next, descriptive fragments, sensory details?" We think in poetry. But some people pretend poetry is far away.

As a Palestinian-American, how do you find yourself facing similar issues regarding identity? NSN : I am a very simple person. We work with what we have. I do believe our sense of cultures grows, or should grow, as we live longer lives, by way of exposure, empathy, care. Justice, or a lack of justice, seems to stimulate certain needs for creative expression as well. : You write a lot about your grandmother and her role in your life. You also encourage girls to write. On the other hand, your father is also clearly influential in your work. How do you identify yourself as a poet?
