I tried for ages before

Posted on Sat, 04 May 2019

I tried for ages before reading, to guess what the title was about but failed utterly, it's brilliant! And how "crumbs" could be both an expression of annoyance and, literally crumbs. And how you show the real time concentration with "care..."...

you communicate the cold so

Posted on Fri, 03 May 2019

you communicate the cold so well with this, I was reaching for my cardigan at the end! And the hopelessness of it, too. This terrible journey was only leading to the front line, yet they did not lie down and die there, but carried on, such...

Nice to hear of your robin :0

Posted on Fri, 03 May 2019

Nice to hear of your robin :0) I wonder how many partnerships of gardener and robin there have been through the centuries? If they know that we love their songs?

There is so much to this poem

Posted on Wed, 24 Apr 2019

There is so much to this poem. The sense of movement all through, and how you start off outside and move through the window, curtains, even the bed clothes, into the space beside you. How outside is full of life with the crickets, yet deep inside...

Having spent time this

Posted on Tue, 23 Apr 2019

Posted on Tue, 23 Apr 2019

monkey puzzles are like octopuses, had never realised, but you are right! And your "comfortable, spongy turf" I know grass like that too, it's beautiful :0) Did your grass have tiny yellow flowers in? i like how you make the skylark song...

you write of a friendlier

Posted on Thu, 18 Apr 2019
