Synopsis: FINALIST FOR THE 2008 COLORADO BOOK AWARD In Holding Three Things at Once, Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer brings her experiences as mother, linguist, orchardist and life lover into poetic practice. Most of us attempt to hold at least three things at once, and this book invites the reader to revel in everyday miracles: ripening apricots, learning to speak a new language, honking geese. These are poems to help us relish paradox and fall more deeply in love with world, even as it changes.
About the Author: Lifelover Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer lives in Southwest Colorado, where she serves as Poet Laureate of San Miguel County and manages a 70-acre organic fruit farm with her husband, Eric. Motivated by love of language, land and life, she earned her master s degree in English Language & Linguistics from University of Wisconsin Madison, and now teaches poetry for Think 360, The Aesthetic Education Institute of Colorado, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Camp Coca Cola. For ten years she directed the Telluride Writers Guild. She performs live-wire high-jinks poetry with EAR, a performance trio including Ellen Metrick and Art Goodtimes. Her books include Intimate Landscape (Summer 2009), Holding Three Things at Once, Insatiable, If You Listen, and Suitcase of Yeses, an audio CD. As mother to three children, ages 0 to 25, she relies on singing for her sanity and performs with Telluride s seven-woman a cappella group, Heartbeat.
