Mid-Wales – (in August)

Humpy hills, all ups and downs,
with glowing purple heather crowns,
paths of turf between fern patches,
bilberries, lichen, moss...

Inspiration Point, Bryce Canyon, Utah (IP)

and ‘oohs’ exhaled from inspiration,

Just a minute!

From the skies, and ceiling,

Posted on Fri, 15 Aug 2014

From the skies, and ceiling, to the intriguing descriptions of his home, I enjoyed the structure of this piece, and for a moment forgot what I would really feel like living there myself. The idea of the changing patterns of the trash was good too...

I'm not sure if I read this

Posted on Sun, 03 Aug 2014

I'm not sure if I read this before, but if so, I think if so I must have done so too quickly. I have now caught its picture more clearly, and really feel how it has captured much of both worlds quite simply, and effectively.

Posted on Wed, 16 Jul 2014

Posted on Sat, 12 Jul 2014

I liked this very much too. Concise, but not obscure. Actually, I thought that the rhino's horn looks like a pointed bone, so poetic licence! Particularly liked 'Labouring body lumbers' alliteration.

Posted on Wed, 09 Jul 2014

Well put, Taris. I think I would add that the desire to obey God needs to be there, though if it is really there then there will be a realisation of the need for his help to do so, and for his forgiveness of the constant failings.

Posted on Tue, 01 Jul 2014
