Not quite an ode

Apropos of Nothing

Is there a physicist in the house?

Rag man's horse

To the sound of wood-pigeons


As long as there's a place

Posted on Sun, 10 May 2020

Hi littleditty. A lovely thoughtful poem. It really put me in touch with the spirit of spring renewal. It flows like those chalk streams. I used to visit the Chilterns a lot when we lived in North London. Stokenchurch was a popular hang out, and...

Languishing on sofas is just so Ottoman. Indulge whenever the chance comes along.

You've captured the mood in your own novel and enjoyable way, Rhiannon. Very well said and well put.

Cosmology with a thread of your faith.

Entropy is much in evidence these days.

Hi Tom. Can't please everyone

Posted on Fri, 04 Oct 2019

Hi Tom. Can't please everyone and I'm certainly not going to go all apologetic over religion. Anyway, it's true, isn't it? It IS said that He created everything. When people start invoking bearded men in the sky to tell women what they can and...

Posted on Sat, 10 Aug 2019

Hi insert. There's an interesting point there. I couldn't get the ending (cadence?) right, or as I heard it in my head. I'd need to rehearse it more, which is tricky at the moment. The crux of the recording issue, I suppose: performance. There's...

Posted on Sat, 01 Dec 2018

A very honest piece. I've been numbed by the response of the BBC to all this, whose approach is to produce a statistical analysis proving that there is no problem. So are the almost daily reports fake news? Or was fake news the failure to report...

Posted on Sat, 28 Jul 2018

People have said to me "Don't write for cherries". I say to myself "Don't write for cherries". I try not to. But every post is an overlooked magnum opus. Except the devil may care ones, which sometimes get cherried. The other thing people say to...

Lovely and sparse. Well thought-out, Elsie.

A real invitation to think about what's going on in the spaces between the lines.

I was wondering if RUN! needs to be there?

Posted on Mon, 25 Jun 2018

What a lovely piece, Gayle. I'm so glad you posted it. Our cat had two homes. We only found out in his latter years. He'd often wait a whole evening outside the pub at the end of the street for my brother, my dad and I to come out and make little...

Posted on Sat, 07 Apr 2018

Thanks Di_Hard. Writers. Critics. Readers. All you can do is get on with the job and see what comes. You should have seen how many times I had to rethread the needle. I turned up for my Eng Lit exam on the wrong day, about 40 years ago. I've been...
