Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point
Posted by airyfairy on Sat, 15 Oct 2022
Two very different, and very thoughtful, pieces this week.
Story of the Week is jxmartin's 'Ian - the aftermath', about the devastation of a hurricane. One commenter on ABC has likened this author's beautifully written diaries of American life to the BBC broadcasts by the late, great Alistair Cooke, and I would certainly agree. The same warmth and friendliness, accompanied by acute observation: Ian- the aftermath | ABCtales
Poem of the Week is Di Hard's 'tree time', which celebrates the diversity, beauty and sheer glory of trees. Again, I very much agree with one of our commenters (ABCtalers are an astute lot!) that this poem expresses the personalities of different trees - and it made me feel better in these turbulent times: tree time | ABCtales

Have a good week everyone!
