Thorns, Hearts and Thistles poetry collection

Thorns Hearts & Thistles_full cover

Thorns, Hearts and Thistles is my debut poetry collection, just released by Eldritch Press and now available in paperback from Amazon.

Included are pieces written as long ago as the mid-1980’s, and as recently as the end of last year. I’ve included previously published pieces such as Enamored in Darkness which appeared in last year’s HWA Poetry Showcase, Inevitable as the Incoming Tide which was originally released in Jamais Vu Spring 2014 issue, and Contemplating Corners which was published in the charity anthology Widowmakers.

Also included in this 100 page collection are several of my photographs, taken in such various places as the Oregon coast, the Duchesne River valley in eastern Utah, and even my own backyard. I’m very proud of this collection, my first but not my last!


Thorns, Hearts and Thistles brings together the best of Rose Blackthorn’s poetry. Journey down the darkened road into veils of reality diverging into streams of consciousness fraught with horror and beguiling beauty. Rose’s poetry sings to the heart in its depth and overall arching tone, poetically and fervently calling you into worlds yet unseen.
