In Brainstorms, Jennifer Bloom invites us to connect - with
stories, relationships, and the natural world that is often
hidden behind the faCade 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, life's ups and downs, beginnings
and endings. But no rose is ever identical. Bloom's poetic gift lies in her ability
to evoke what's 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
