Luigi, I am very glad I read

Posted on Thu, 31 Oct 2019

Luigi, I am very glad I read your poem! I particularly like the sense of enjoyment you share, as in your first 3 lines. The exuberant exclamation mark :0) And I loved these lines too

Thankyou Jenny :0) The poem

Posted on Thu, 31 Oct 2019

Thankyou Jenny :0) The poem hasn't done them justice at all. I had a look online to see if anyone had written a poem about murmerations but couldn't find one. It is so amazing to see, there were only 20 or so last week, but every day about 4 o...

"the tall decay of sunflowers

I like this, allotments have so much of a person's life poured in, the dead stalks are like gravestones for the time in summer past

bleak and strong. I like how

bleak and strong. I like how there is no blame, what has happened is compared to weather, it just happens. And I like that the last word is "thaw"

I love the slow majestic

Posted on Mon, 14 Oct 2019

I love the slow majestic sweep of these lines :

the deep blue cruise

of an underwater colossus.

 

and these, you have expressed how I felt as a child seeing the one at the Natural History Museum. This is brilliant,...
