In Brainstorms, Jennifer Bloom invites us to connect with stories, relationships, and the natural world that is often hidden behind the faade of suburbia. At times metaphysical, quirky, and emotionally raw, the poetry in this collection is an exploration of what it means to be human and the moments that can transcend the ordinary. The themes are familiar love lost and found, lifes ups and downs, beginnings and endings. But no rose is ever identical. Blooms poetic gift lies in her ability to evoke whats familiar and shared by way of tiny, almost imperceptible gestures and the powerful, sometimes painful, intimacies of everyday life. Her work evokes the layers and textures of Mary Oliver and Joni Mitchell. Its color is, finally, a defiant and joyous yellow, its music the first sounds of spring. - George Gonzalez, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Religion and Interdisicplinary Studies, Monmouth University Bloom has a way of bringing beauty to the mundane, eliciting an intimacy with her readers through shared experience. Recognizing the sacred in the everyday, her poetry invites us to linger over what we might otherwise ignore. A sleeping child, a quiet house, a butterfly in flight... these are the moments she elevates to the remarkable. A must-read for those desiring to transform their relationship with the world. - Jennifer Hritz, Author, The Crossing and I, too, Have Suffered in the Garden Cover Art: Hector Kriete Photo: Diana Berrent Photography Experience more at
