What poem scared you the most to write? What did you learn while researching poems? those are two of the questions I was asked in the interview for The Colorado Sun about my most recent book, Naked for Tea. The interview was published today–coordinated in part by the Colorado Author’ League. Read it here, and find, too, a link to a poem from the book about how we help each other as we are “lost.”

Hello Poetry Friends!

Today I got word that Jazz Jaeschke at Story Circle Book Reviews did a wonderful (positive!) review of my most recent book, Naked for Tea. 

“Trommer’s poems run the gamut from the sensual to the sublime,” she writes, calling the voice in the book “wise, practical yet whimsical.”

You can read the whole review here.

You can buy the collection here. at the publisher’s website, or on Amazon.

And if you have read the book, will you please consider writing a brief review of your own and putting it on Amazon here.

Hi friends,

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, “This World”


My new book, Naked for Tea, is just out! It was a finalist for the Able Muse Book Award, and deals with vulnerability, and how with our beautiful broken selves we can fall more deeply in love everyday with the beautiful broken world. And it features a fabulous foreword by Wayne Muller, author of A Life of Being, Having and Doing Enough.

I have three readings/signings set up for now:

April 3, Telluride Arts, Telluride, 6 p.m.
May 21, Cimarron Books, Ridgway, 6:30 p.m.
July 7, Book Bar, Denver, 5 p.m.

You can see the book and purchase it with Pay Pal on my website: https://wordwoman.com/books/naked.htm

If you prefer to pay with a credit card, you can buy it from the publisher’s website: https://www.ablemusepress.com/books/rosemerry-wahtola-trommer-naked-for-tea-poems

And you read about it and hear a podcast on it here: http://www.tellurideinside.com/2018/03/trommers-naked-for-tea-book-launch-at-telluride-arts-43.html

I totally believe in giving poems away—as you know—and I will continue to send you poems every day. AND, I would really appreciate it if you would support this poetry practice by purchasing a book. It would mean a lot to me.

If you want to set up a reading for your organization or a workshop near you, send me a note!

love, Rosemerry
