The Color of Lost Rooms
ISBN: 978-0976255741
Blue Rooster Press

"In a world where change is the only constant, there is always something to grieve: lost love, lost time, lost dreams. Rooted in history, nature and art, THE COLOR OF LOST ROOMS is a haunting collection of brave, vulnerable and sometimes philosophical poems. The collection journeys through passion and loss to illuminate the many rooms we occupy, inviting the reader to discover ways love defines the human experience - and how to survive it."

Winner of the 19th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Prize for poetry.

    "Imagine how the cup/misses the weight of tea Irene writes in “Blue Still Life,” ...These lines hint at much of what this book is about: love and loss, desire and duty, regret and the return of hope."
