These Many Rooms

These Many Rooms

“Laure-Anne Bosselaar’s luminous poems mourn the loss of her dear beloved even as they become a testament to the possibility of profound, abiding friendship and love. With compassionate attention, she observes herself in these rooms of life and of grief. Her attention is patient, humble, courageous, and leaves us with a stunningly clear, unadorned trace of a tender history. Inside of her words are windows, darkness and light–a book, a shared life ‘alive with its own clarity.’ Such texts feel ancient, ongoing. I am forever deepened (taught to listen). Forever moved.”
