Even though your thoughts are

Posted on Tue, 18 Feb 2020

Even though your thoughts are wrapped up in metaphors of birds these poems are so raw. I feel like I am getting to know your emotional state like seeing birds flick between leaves. It seems rude to read them

I really admire the way  last

Posted on Sat, 15 Feb 2020

I really admire the way  last words in the lines stand out, as with - wild, hurled, and the alliteration of wind and wild. I feel my throat opening like the sky as I read it, to make the long vowel sounds in my mind. Would be a great one to  hear...

Posted on Wed, 12 Feb 2020

I had not heard of "indwelling"  before. Having looked it up, it's a great word :0) There is a quiet, positive power in this:

Posted on Thu, 30 Jan 2020

spitting drizzle – growing
heavier, but nearly back at car – see through
the cloudy veil a gleam of sunshine glowing

I like "spines of shade"

Posted on Tue, 28 Jan 2020

I like "spines of shade"

I like this one very much. Well, not like, because it is grim. Admire. The idea of earthworms being like memories in the tunnels of your mind and "uncoil of earthworms" is wonderful.
