For years Bonnie Thurston has written short poems that focus on a single image or one revelatory idea. They were not sonnets, but were all fourteen lines long. The great sonneteers wrote sequences, often several on one topic and in this Bonnie Thurston follows in their footsteps, leading the reader on a gentle journey from home and through the seasons of the sequence, one that beckons or disturbs the imagination after setting it free to roam through daily experiences that, in the words of , Wordsworth are ‘reflected in tranquility’. In these insightful, honed and precise poems you will discover the extraordinariness of the ordinary life and, mirabile dictu, wisdom. This is a collection to savour.
