Great poem. I loved the coldest star line. It gives the great feeling of distance and unreachabiltiy]....oh I can't spell it and I'm not even sure if it's a word anyway! Unreachable will do. Propaganda in every country, I would say.

Posted on Sat, 13 Jan 2018

I confess I'm more of a dog than a cat person - unless they're Big cats! - but this is lovely. Effortlessly long sentences with interesting ideas like the ferry bit or the clock bit. And you've captured the rhythm of the cat's purring throughout...

What a reawakening. I liked this a lot and looked up where Tobermorey is - looks beautiful. Really liked the line about losing the arrows. Lovely ending.

Congratulations. I liked this, it has the pace of someone sitting back in a  chair on a veranda. I like how you are writing easily and feeling surprised by that. Probably the way we write best is the one that comes naturally so just go with it...

I loved this. At the moment I have a heap load of characters stuck in a tardis sized plot which is floating aimlessly through space. I am now concerned that they are all talking to each other and there is going to be some sort of rebellion and...
