How and when should I read a book of poems?

Reading a book of poems can be a deeply personal and rewarding experience. It's best to approach a poetry collection with an open mind and a willingness to explore new emotions and perspectives. I find it helpful to read a few poems at a time, allowing space for reflection and connection to the words. The perfect time to read poetry is when I can fully immerse myself in the experience, whether it's during a quiet morning, a relaxing evening, or even amidst the chaos of a bustling coffee shop. Ultimately, the best way to read a book of poems is to listen to your intuition and let the words resonate with your heart and soul.
