Gold cherry
Poem of the week

hard and fast and shiny

we make our faces look plastic like dolls we had as children, un aging if we can afford to pay in plastic. Package fruit so it won't go black as air...

Pick of the Month

Spring a Butterfly

Dusty cocoon of box tight packed through warmer days deep green wire limbed larvi unbends into branches of frizzy plastic tree tall, when you both...

You are quite right Tom, it's

Posted on Sun, 17 Sep 2017

You are quite right Tom, it's just a collection of nature scenes. It's just that I realised that someone from centuries ago could have seen them, too. And while I think of the wood as a beautiful place to go and see the sun and hear the birds....

Posted on Mon, 21 Jan 2019

Richly deserved, it's

Posted on Fri, 18 Jan 2019

Richly deserved, it's BEAUTIFUL, could feel the sweet air and see the colours. Is so interesting how you combine time into it, not just the rhythm of poetry but of your day. They seem sort of like Richard Long sculptures only not so hard....

this is wonderful reading. I

Posted on Mon, 19 Nov 2018

this is wonderful reading. I like your two different voices, you slower, descriptive and full of rich images but an outsider and your friend chatty, personal and an insider, the difference emphasised by "you Canadians"

Those last 3 sentences are so

Posted on Sat, 17 Nov 2018

I like how the beach is woven

I like how the beach is woven all through, the people, the seagulls. It's a great frame for the story, it adds to the easy warmth of it

Glad your Mum got to stay at

Posted on Sat, 10 Nov 2018

In an interview someone

Posted on Sat, 10 Nov 2018

In an interview someone famous who had gone to live in America (can't remember who it was) said the thing they missed most about England was the sound of crows cawing in the Autumn. Your poem has a timelessness to it, makes me think this has been...
