By Sarah Broom

within the strong new poems of Gleam, Sarah Broom explores the impact of a life-threatening situation when it comes to the landscapes of the flora and fauna, charting the toughest issues in attractive language. Spare and poised, the poems in Gleam have the grace and lightness of a few of its personal favorite photographs - of drifting feathers or the fragile cartilages of birds in flight. Broom's uniqueness is in encapsulating, expressing and making feel of sturdy inner feeling and turmoil via metaphor. In managed, sinewy language and astringent and uncluttered poems, Sarah Broom brings us not only to the private questions of life yet to the very event of mortality itself: 'we are flesh and blood in any case / and we don't wish to die'. Gleam is a amazing exploration of what's worthy interpreting; who can be hung on to; and what's worthy saving - it's going to open out painful, worthwhile vistas for its readers.
