Overview

These poems resonate with poetry's essential gift-the thrill of being. The poet's gratitude is exemplary yet at times understandably rueful: so much is given, so little to hold onto. Nonetheless, an appreciation founded in ardor wins the day. We, the readers, are all the better for meeting these wise, vibrant poems.

-Baron Wormser,

Maine Poet Laureate 2000-2006, Author of Songs from a Voice

The tender clarity of Brooke James's snapshot-like poems is so precisely rendered, so crisp and exquisitely honest, it reminds us that any at moment, whether we are considering a child's hand print on a glass door or a collection of laundry on a clothes line, by paying attention to the simplest and most un-remarkable aspects of experience, we can be invited to participate in the quiet and thrilling mysteries and paradoxes that are threaded through our lives.

-Michael Collier,

Director Emeritus, Bread Loaf Writers' Conferences

About the Author

Here is a collection of poems firmly rooted in a sense of place: rural New England. Why Bramble? Because, reflects the author, if bramble has an address, it's where I grew up. True to its title, Bramble crisscrosses, wanders, entices with blossom and snags with occasional thorn. Above all else, Bramble is an ode to the undeniable tangle of life that lies between the garden and beyond.
