Review of Spreading Like Wild Flowers by Timothy Gager

Well-titled and well-introduced, Timothy Gager’s new poetry collection, Spreading Wild Flowers, both celebrates and broods on everyday life and the persistence of a medieval-generated, but contemporary version, of a morally centered Everyman. Gager’s wiry verses come at you from all directions, each bloom well-rooted and well protected against predatory aesthetes and lackadaisical flower pickers. Lushness seems beside the point to this poet. Themes of hardscrabble continuity and day-to-day endurance drive these poems. for more of my review of Spreading like Wild Flowers go here: http://dougholder.blogspot.com/2020/01/spreading-like-wild-flowers-by-timothy.html
