I am so grateful to poet and storyteller Steven Law for the thoughtful review of my new poetry collection All the Honey; what a joy to read this response to a book that is open to devastating grief and great joy and pleasure. 

Here’s an excerpt:

One of Trommer’s greatest gifts is her willingness and capacity to inhabit a selected space – whether it’s a car ride with her daughter or slipping through broken slats of a fence to sit alone in an abandoned field – and gather from it everything that is beautiful and noteworthy. An environment, a situation, a moment, an emotion, Trommer gives that space her full attention. Sometimes her attentiveness is that of a camera with its aperture set to f/64, bringing everything near and far simultaneously into focus. Sometimes she uses a poetic macro lens to zoom in on a moment’s smallest, finest details.

Story Circle Review of The Miracle Already Happening

I imagine that Rumi would laugh at me for how delighted I was to read this review of my book “The Miracle Already Happening: Everyday Life with Rumi.” He would tease me, saying something like these words from Amma, “These flowers are not for you.” 

Still, I was delighted to read this review. Thank you, Story Circle Book Reviews, for your kind words.
