Hi Di. This is lovely. It rolls off the page beautifully. I really like the visuals it triggers. The cues are strong despite the sparsity of the style. The sparsity gives it a lightness that evokes the blossom and petals you describe. It works a...

Posted on Tue, 17 Mar 2020

It's sad to see them captive, although I remember waking one morning on a train to see one standing being scrubbed with a soapy yard brush. He/she was quite obviously enjoying it.

Posted on Tue, 03 Mar 2020

All you need is a new battery and an oil change. There's something durable and more suited to the home mechanic with older models.

Oh, and I totally missed the ekphrastic thing. Had to go and look up the meaning again. I've read in a couple of places (I can never remember these things), was it Plato talked about the artist and the carpenter and the distance from God? Might...

Posted on Thu, 20 Feb 2020

Oh, THAT'S what they are. I need to develop phone envy. What a mature (as in intellectually, classically aware etc) poem this is. I'm certainly not familiar with the mythical basis, but it works very well without that knowledge - it's just...
