The Mimic Octopus*

This octopus can mimic as its body morphs like plastic: it can flatten out, and trail its arms, and swim like a banded sole; it can make itself look...

Real Riches

[Continuing the idea of a hymn for Sundays] … So wealth will leave you poor, if that is all you own, for greater is the treasure found when wisdom’s grace is known.

Proffered Promise

[Continuing the idea of a hymn for Sundays] Real hope needs to be accepted, and it has a reality even better than here.

The Hare in the Middle

A bridge reflected … tiddlers and dragonflies, a swish of large fish, walk through buttercups – glittering gold … 'Haring' out of the rape …

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2016

Thought-provoking, Jean, and I can empathize with much that is on your mind. As a family, when I was growing up we didn't kiss, hug, or say 'I love you' much, but I think we were at ease with each other and had a warmth of expression in greeting...

Welcome, you are new here, aren't you? You've drawn out an interesting and tender theme here.
I liked the thoughtfulness of  'As the passion that they share Crescendos with great care.'

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...

Posted on Sat, 14 May 2016

Another marathon, Terry. I get the impression it must be very satisfying to get all that rhythm and rhyme of words flowing, whatever the meaning.

As you know surreal isn't my medium, and I tend to try to work out every detail that's going...
