My stories


Mixed motives, mixed metaphors

Harmonious surface but, don’t look beneath – undercurrents flow – suspicion and resentment of things they 'think' they know – no checking out, just … by the measure that you judge you will be weighed, and may such tumble share, and do not hide the hatreds that you bear beneath a smiling surface fair.

People say ‘the grace’ to each other

[Continuing the idea of one of my old hymns on Sundays:]. (May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14) … we cannot understand his might, but love to learn and praise, tell of his gracious ways!

Day of contrasts

The morning was wet, as wet as you get – torrential rain slamming, drumming … when you’re 94 and can no longer dash through the downfall and splash … free for the afternoon – what should we do? … the rain has stopped … a lovely spot to walk, and talk … (now with requested recording!)

A skeuomorphic diet for … (Poetry Monthly)

This is an old IP-poem, but while I was recording the other day, I thought it might come down well as a perfomance piece. https://soundcloud.com/rhiannon-weber/marsdiet

Resurrection power

[Continuing the idea of one of my old hymns on Sundays:] Jesus was raised by God’s great might, raised from the dead to realms of Light; Head of the church at God’s right hand, – mighty the power at his command. Power, help when I’m tempted, power, when I’m afflicted …

You do seem to be able to describe his thinking very naturally, and his observations, looking into the water, noticing the small life, and drifting into imaginations.
Then suddenly the tensions, mirrored a bit by his grandad's tensions. It...

Posted on Wed, 07 Jan 2015

This reminded me of when my son was being taught about the 'rules of composition' for music, and I worried he would lose what seemed to be spontaneous and individual intuition for what would make interesting sound. He assured me it wouldn't, but...

Posted on Thu, 18 Dec 2014

Trying to see where you're coming from in this, PT. It's because of the suffering, death, sin, that God is doing something. I know we would like him to sort it all out at ths moment,  but just like the prophecies concerning his first...

Posted on Thu, 11 Dec 2014

Stephen, I don't manage to dip much into the prose section, and horror and surreal isn't really my scene – I didn't even like 'Alice in Wonderland' as a child! However I did find reading this intriguing for the well-structured brevity, and the...

Interestingly put, Tina. So easy to get distraught over loose ends, and to miss 'jobs' more important or just noticing some beauty, which you so well describe.

Posted on Sat, 21 Nov 2015

Brings the era to life, or its trappings to memory. The longing for hugs is always there, whether the home be relatively poor, or rich, and whether we have them or don't, the value of them remains clearly felt. Rhiannon
