#WomenReadWomen2019 Genre Nonfiction Poetry Poetry Friday Reading Themes

[Poetry Friday] Ignite Your “Fire”

Fire by Nikita Gill.


Fats here.

The poem* I’m sharing today is part of Book Riot’s 25 Feminist Poems to Inspire and Provoke Nasty Women. It is written by Nikita Gill. Book Riot did not specify which poetry collection it came from, but I logged into my library account and reserved a copy of Gill’s Wild Embers. Sounds like it belongs there. The poem is short but powerful, and it reminds us not to underestimate the quiet ones. *wink*

Poetry Friday round-up is hosted by Carol at Beyond LiteracyLink!



*Layout and design courtesy of QuotesCreator app. The dragon background is a cropped image of my dragon statue, which I purchased from the Medieval Times gift shop in November 2017. Background image of girl and heart of fire (“Ballerina”) is designed by SKRODERCOMICS1776.

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).
