 About the Book 

Rose Cooks Notes From a Bright Field is a single quiet path, in and out, capturing the transitory beauties of the everyday: a mothers ashes imagined as Lux flakes- the fruit-gummed glass of a cathedral. Where the poems themes are of nature, loss and the spiritual, these are grounded in concrete imagery like the clack-clack of the shell and the bones. Rose Cook is one of the South-Wests best loved poets. An Apples & Snakes poet, she is a regular performer of her work, and is co-founder of the poetry and performance groups One Night Stanza and Dangerous Cardigans. In their transparency and deceptive simplicity Rose Cooks poems reveal pure and hidden depths in nature, memory and loss, celebrating and questioning the fragility of everyday interactions. To read Notes From a Bright Field is to be renewed in body, mind and spirit. Anthony Wilson Rose Cooks poems are often poignant, reflecting the many variables of ordinary lives, but always with a lightness of touch, an acceptance of what it is to be human, and a singular inwardness that delights.
