Description

Gail Rooke's first chapbook, "Meditations By The Sea," now offered in hardcover, includes all the author's poems from the original paperback. The poems address the natural world and the poet's place in it, or beside it, sometimes part of the world's flow and ebb, sometimes just watching. Her poems reflect her reverence for the natural world, her awe of its timelessness and dreamscapes, and her ache in witnessing that our human transience might well become the natural world's transience as well. The lyrical poems in "Meditations By The Sea" take the reader into and through that timelessness -- which is always present in the rhythms of the sea -- but not without reminders of our own human transience.

Author Biography

Gail Rooke lives in Eastern Connecticut, in that rural stretch known as The Last Green Valley. She considers herself a Nature Poet -- her poems reflect her reverence for the natural world, her awe of its timelessness and dreamscapes, and her ache in witnessing that our human transience might well become the natural world's transience as well. The lyrical poems in "Meditations By The Sea" take the reader into and through that timelessness -- which is always present in the rhythms of the sea -- but not without reminders of our own human transience.A former journalist and copywriter, Gail is an Elder Law attorney. She has practiced in the areas of Elder Law, Real Estate, Family Law, Probate Law and Estate Planning for 24 years. In her work with the elderly and their families, she assists her clients as they navigate issues of loss, new roles and change, re-alignment of assets, and planning for end of life. She holds a BA in English Literature, an MBA in Marketing, a JD in law, and she recently completed an MFA in Writing. "Meditations By The Sea" is her first poetry chapbook.
