Beneath the Flood
Awaken to mystery. Anchored by a prose poem on a series of baptisms she’s witnessed, Jen Rose Yokel’s second collection of poetry has grown out of the seven years since her transplant from the South to New England. Her combination of free verse and poetic forms capture overheard conversations, psalms of longing and lament, the nostalgic tension that comes with age, and musings stirred by early pandemic quarantine. In this collection, Jen awakens readers to mysteries all around and encourages them to dive deeper than what's on the surface.
Editorial Reviews “Jen is a poet of thin places and deep waters, and a companion within them.” Chris Wheeler, Author, Solace: Poems for the Broken Season “With the wisdom of a saint and the innocence of a child, Jen shares the examens of a heart carefully weighed and measured, and the result is a blessing for each and every reader.” Janna Barber, Author, Invisible Hope: Poetry for Ragamuffins
