My stories

Van Gogh and the Spaceman

I wanted to write something about the poisonous blue of Thatcherism. But went off completely somewhere else and consoled myself that she didn't own the colour.

Poem of the week

Only one Song

There was only one song in the woods
Gold cherry

Out of the Land of Nowhere

Meant to be a picture story really.

Backalong

I saw on the internet that Backalong was a Somerset or West Country word for a long time ago, although my dad (Somerset born) says he knew it also as meaning 'back over there.'

Congratulations. I liked this

Posted on Thu, 06 Jul 2017

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...

Great reply. And I think our confusion/reluctance/apathy is all down to PR lies, over the centuries, you can see it from the Norman oppression of the Anglo Saxons to the British Empire. So yes, keep telling the truth.

Posted on Fri, 29 May 2015

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...

I loved this. Is he real? I loved the 'drank lager grew bitter'. I always like wondering what the child was llike with old people or what the old person will be like for the child and you've done the whole sweep of his life in a short, nail on...

I love the stillness of this and the faith of knowing something's there when you can't see it.

Posted on Tue, 08 Mar 2016

Really liked the quickness of this, right down to the lash of that buzzing thought. It feels like a kid taking a deep breath and saying it all in one go. The Queen passed me once too when I was a child and apparantly she smiled at us but I was...

I think you've been saying goodbye ever since in all these beautiful poems. Each one is a gift to her. Without meaning to sound trite I'm sure she reads them. The grains of sand on the beach and the picture of the little girl on the beach with...

I have no expertise here. I think I'd be tempted by symmetery, not to mention safety. All I can say is - you don't need to decide yet? Let the answer come to you. Revel in getting better.

Posted on Fri, 24 Apr 2015

I liked the shape too. It's almost symmetrical but the slightly thicker end reflects the build up. And the thinest bit, the middle, hinges on the but! It's great when you don't plan a shape but it has a life of its own. It makes me think of my...
