Down by the riverside

(river Wye, near How Caple, 10/9/14)

Sunshine dapples
river ripples,
leaves drift down
and float along

Indian summer …

… spread-out dewy cobwebs glitter
in the nippy, sparkling morning;
shining, baking day,
glowing sunset;
firelit evening,...

Fading

… but now with all abilities decayed,
he seems no longer bitter, or afraid …
sweet smile awhile.

Good to read your good longings and prayer, and may the light and truth of God's words make you to 'grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever! Amen'  (2 Peter 3:18...

I like it very much too, Tina

Posted on Thu, 04 Sep 2014

I like it very much too, Tina, and its butterfly attendants. Good to have the flowers when others have ceased. But I especially thought your juxtaposition with the vivid raw images of the neglected, defiled places which it so often brightens was...

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...

My mother-in-law, nearly 95,

Posted on Wed, 13 Aug 2014

My mother-in-law, nearly 95, has had no real contact with hearing/seeing the news for a long time. She read something brief recently, and commented, 'who would have thought in this day and age'. I was quite taken aback, realising she had...

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 Sat, 26 Jul 2014

I enjoyed your journey among the changing shades. Your spaces are much more vast than in England's farms and countryside, I think.
I looked up Leshenaultia, but it seemed to have a 'c' between the 's' and 'h', if...

Posted on Wed, 16 Jul 2014

This is very well 'sculpted', Bee, and the interweaving rhymes heighten the flow. So much unsaid, left to the imagination, including what kind of love could lead to such a parting, and the finality of not being able to yet ask that...

I liked this very much too.

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.

The contrast of escape to the garden peace, observation and imagination, with the tension of everyday struggles of communications and misunderstandings of relationship interestingly portrayed, Maisie. Rhiannon
