Imagined in White Twitter

Imagined in White
Sometimes life doesn’t work out in the way we’d hoped for or planned. Sometimes the world isn’t the place we thought it was. However, there are always pleasures to be found even on the darkest path, and curiosities often wait in the shadows if we would only turn and search for them. In this wide-ranging collection of poetry, discover the determined heart of flowers, the true strangeness of people and how the richest love can be found in the smallest of actions.

Dreaming in Blue
Dreaming in Blue focuses on the relationship between women and the world around them. Discover one woman’s search for the perfect life balance, and find out what is lost and what is gained on the journey. Can nature really soothe our minds, what is the role of people in our lives, and where can our freedom be found?

Thinking in Yellow
Thinking in Yellow focuses on the relationship between people and nature. It seeks to understand how the ordinary things of life can become extraordinary, and how the beauty around us can be a force for healing. Discover how a bird in the sky can change our perspective in an instant, how flowers can bring unexpected hope, and how letting go can be the greatest gift of all.

Sunday Haiku
Sunday Haiku is published as an ebook by Anne Brooke Books. It is a series of rich and meditative haikus designed to get you through your year positively.

Salt and Gold
A series of forty meditation poems based on the stories of Exodus and the Gospel of St Luke. Particular themes are light and darkness, journeying, prayer, and the inherent otherness of God. How can human beings truly respond to God’s mercy and justice in an imperfect world?

A Stranger's Table
A Stranger's Table features poems on the strangeness of everyday objects and events, and how they can help us see our lives in a fresh and intriguing way.
