Adobe Odes

Product Description: Award-winning poet Pat Mora invites readers into her home in this new collection of forty-nine odes. Inspired by Pablo Neruda's Odas Elemantales and reinvented with a Latina identity, Mora celebrates the ordinary in lyrics that are anything but. Her poetry is the poetry of space — house patterns and adobe constructions — and the human rhythms that happen inside. It is also the poetry of what she loves-chocolate, books, dandelions, church bells, hope, courage, and even rain.
