Bloom is a poetry collection of 140 poems about growth and renewal, about love, grief and learning from them.

Bloom was such a beautiful and short poetry collection. I love reading poetry when I’m looking for something to ease my mind, not to think about college and my exams, to just relax and enjoy the art that the poet has written. Beau Taplin is such a talented poet and I enjoyed reading his poems and I cannot wait to discover more of his work.

I really liked that there was a theme in this book. Everything is light pink, white or black. There are several poems per page and sometimes you have a page with a poem in a beautiful and big font (with a pink, white or black background). Here’s an example:

Here are the poems that I really liked:
  • Fools Together
  • The Slow Death
  • Sweet as a Smile
  • The Softest Blue
  • Recovery Time
  • Unexpected Arrival
  • Illuminate
  • Imperishable
  • My Best Self
  • Anxiety
  • Yes Man
