Some say that life is a gift

A time to learn and rethink what was a thought in our before minds

some say that life is a simple series of minutes moments hours days


years seconds


A space to live and then to die

I say Yes

Yes Lord

Yes to all the heady stuff in between.

- Jill Scott

It is my pleasure to dedicate this book to Ms. Fran Danish, my eighth-grade teacher, and all the poets of Philadelphia, New York, and Washington D.C. who continue to insight,ignite, and recite this blessed,raunchy,wild ride of a craft. Poetry.

To all other poets on the planet-write like there's no tomorrow. If you do not, there may not be.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031232961X, Hardcover)

Writing poems and keeping journal since 1991, Jill Scott now shares her personal poetry collection in The Moments, the Minutes, the Hours. Praised for her earthy, honestly erotic, soulful and very real lyrics, Jill Scott explores all the flavors of life, love, and self.

Of her music, Jill offers: "It's music. It's experiences. It's vulnerability. It's honesty. It's being a woman---an African American woman. Being a daughter, a sister, a grandchild and a Godmother. It's life. It's deeper than what I know. It's bigger than what I can see. I guess it's a dive into the human spirit." And the same will come forth in this never- before-seen collection of her poetry.

Love poems, break-up poems, short-of-money poems, weariness poems, Christian poems, celebratory poems: all have an immediacy and short-lined honesty that reflects a deep appreciation of everyone from Nikki Giovanni to Emily Dickinson.
