I don't really like much poetry. I generally come away from a poem by some well-known poet thinking, 'Now what makes that a poem?' However, I do like The Ink Dark Moon. It's a collection of short love poems and aubades by medieval Japanese women. In each poem a simple image elegantly evokes an intense emotion. That's all I need.
