In this collection of poems, Colorado poet Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer invites the reader again and again to show up vulnerably to meet the messes of the world. With themes including parenting, failure, gardening, literature, and nature, this collection is a “never-ending waterfall of wonder,” says best-selling author and Wayne Muller in the foreword. “Pay attention,” he writes. “The elegance of her simplicity will blind you to her mastery. Then, she will let you fall, head over heels, in Love. With everything. You have been warned.”  

“Heart-thawingly honest, deliriously sexy, and compassionate down to the fingertips. A book of kindness and bewilderment and delight from one of our best poets.” –Teddy Macker, author of This World
