Bloom chronicles the metamorphosis of a battered phoenix who hymns Mother Nature and erodes oppressive edifices with the same tectonic lips.
Bloom is an impassioned collection of haiku, prose, and free-verse poems which elucidates natural phenomena and documents a teenager’s transformative journey through abuse, sexual assault, and depression. Bloom aims to pollinate the buds of healing in survivor’s souls.
Bloom was created with the dual aim of raising awareness about sexual violence and raising funds for organizations which combat sexual violence. All profits earned by the author will be donated to the Sexual Violence Center, which provides free advocacy and counseling services to victim-survivors.
