Morning Glories

Morning Glories & Other Poems is an elegant, reflective collection where the process of writing becomes spiritual—a meditation for which the purpose varies; often it is about the natural cycle of the things of this earth, and about saying good-bye. The book, in turn, becomes a marker of epiphanal self-discovery. The poems in Morning Glories possess a gracefulness, like the flower itself, taking on their own life—Seeds, Planters, Growing, Blossoms—and illuminate contemplative issues germane to all of humankind: growth, morality, choices, love, and ultimately, the elegy. Brooke’s poems, like lessons, show us that there is something valuable learned from observing our own life’s garden—the artful Irises, Daffodils, Violets, Poppies, and especially the Morning Glories.
