This was a beautiful tribute, Gloria. Brooke made a difference in a lot of people's lives, even beyond writing. This is something we should all strive for. Nice job.

Such a beautiful tribute, Gloria. Loved your poem and it seems like you showcase her style in your poem as well as the influence of the clovers. I once plant an oxalis plant which spread but it only impersonated a four-leaf clover. Sounds like Brooke was the real deal. Thanks for sharing. Glad you got to know her - she was before my time here.

    Thank you so much, Helen. Yes Brooke was the real deal and the clover still grows full and lush. Much appreciation to you always. :))

Oh Gloria you are glorious. What better way to offer a tribute than to write a poem in Adewpearl-ese..
Angelically the song of spring
resounds with bashful flower trills.
Light headed, drunk on words ... I sing
intrigues with dancing daffodils.
You are indeed a wordsmith as she was
I loved her poetry..I loved seeing Sawyer grow up through a poet's protective beauty
God bless and thanks

    Yes, and many thanks Jenny. Brooke made a huge impact on me, so I am pleased to here you enjoyed my Adewpearl-ese type poem. You are terrific. :))

Hello Gloria, I cried reading your sharing writing about our dearest friend Brooke, the most beautiful poem and the story is precisely what her Soul needs to see and hear. The compliments suited for a friend as close as Brooke. May her soul rest in peace. Love Terry xoxo

Outstanding tribute share for this book, my friend. Touching, inspiring and fitting. I love how you notice the layers in writing, in general, and I'm glad you mentioned it about Brooke's beautiful poetry.

Favorite line:

To me, it was a deep and abiding intellectual curiosity that gave her poetry an intimate, yet expansive tone.

YES!



This authentic and penetrating portrait is a great addition to the book. Your poem is, too!

A couple of suggestions:

*
I search for words among the stones
awash in emerald water where,

I'd place that comma after water, not where

*optional recommendation:

the lakes(,) with deep poetic tones(,)
inspire the hearts of those who care.

*
Angelically(,) the song of spring
resounds with bashful flower trills.


Love this line, and because Brooke loved to write of them too?:

Light headed, drunk on words ... I sing
intrigues with dancing daffodils.


I think lightheaded is one word.

Great rhyme and slant rhyme here:

The summer's passion soon will come
to fill my eyes with radiance.
Each four-leaf clover sure to thrum
your rare and lasting excellence.


Flawless glow.

Lovely post...the prose and poetry both.

Hugs,
rd

    AW, thanks. Very few seem to remember those thumbs these days. You're one who almost always never forgets. So considerate of you!

Hi Gloria,

I didn't get to benefit about that class. Maybe I never passed enough to get into the advanced level lol !?

There were a few things she disliked. The rhymes life and strife; and poems about swirling or falling leaves. She was funny, and I will always think of her classes when I see those rhymes and read about falling leaves.

Nnice tribute and poem, my friend :) I am loving the chance to read about all the different moments we all shared with her. I wish I had joined the site earlier to benefit with more time with her.

Joy xx

Hi, Gloria. What a beautiful tribute you have penned here my friend. Brooke would love it, I am sure. Lines like this are so familiar and tie to her poetry so very well:

"he filled her poems with the warm countryside, breathtaking summits, wildlife, flowers and twirling silver leaves. She charmed us with songbirds, pools of Koi and four leaf clovers sprouting under rainbow umbrellas."

You have covered it so well, my friend. bless you, Bob

reply by the author on 20-Mar-2019
    Thank you so much, Bob. I hope she would like it, and I'm sure she'd get a charge out of the clover too, as I did let her know that I had planted it seven years ago after being inspired by one of her poems. It's still grows lush in the lawn. Always appreciation to you, Bob.
