My stories

Dull-day Lamps

Daffodils are glowing
though the sky is glowering.
I’m glad that they don’t close …

The Road to the Cross …

… started in eternity

In counsels eternal,
the Godhead conferred
– the Father, the Spirit,
the Son, holy Word:...

Hedgehogs

Fat little snufflers
searching through leaf litter …

Heart Window

Will you open your heart through your eyes?
not just smile with your lips,
with your eyes in eclipse.
I don’t want to pry,...

He put a new song in my mouth

(Psalm 40:3)

Lifted from mire that sucks and grips,
set down to stand upon firm ground,
he placed a new song on my...

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...

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...

Stephen, I don't manage to

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 Mon, 30 Mar 2015

I thought it was a dog, but it seemed to be a cat! Liked the digging and the perfume. But wasn't sure about the 'his' in the last line - is it the husband having nine lives or should it be 'your' referring to the cat? Maybe I'm totally wrong, if...

Posted on Fri, 20 Mar 2015

You have such a concise, but clear use of words, Bear. Not sure if this is a dream or surreal, or even whether you have a definite aim, but what hit me was the contrast between the desired and denied luxury, and the effect of the child's smile....

 A lot to think about there, and well written of course. How difficult to live with great skill, humbly and kindly. Rhiannon

Posted on Mon, 09 Feb 2015

I can only say, how compassionate and caring the staff are where my father-in-law is. (and it is just a basic nursing home, largely council funded, they have recently introduced a very minimal top-up and of course there is always means testing)....
