Throwing Stones

‘You horrible lot will be working at Royal Ascot this summer.’ He looked at us as if we should feel honoured. A horrible lot, teenagers from...

The Unsent Letter

I've been going through old untitled documents on my cloud and found this unsent letter to my next door neighbour whose noisy handy man (her little pet) polluted the air space with a very loud radio each weekend, drowning out the birds and other soothing sounds.


Orange just doesn’t sit right with me Claiming to be both colour and fruit It can’t just choose one and it’s loud Too shouty, too few this colour...

Putting Things Off

I’ve been Putting things off Turning inward Turning in Shrinking my absorption Starving the point Just inhaling Listening to my Blood flowing I am...

The Three Fields of You

This fertile field to which we’re born In furrowed tilth for infant roots To dock and grow in loving loam You flourished in this sunny gaze With...

I really enjoyed reading this

Posted on Wed, 26 Sep 2018

I really enjoyed reading this, it brought to life a typical suprmarket shift complete with misery and the type of characters which seem to crop up in most workplaces. It recall my own stint in 'provisions', I got a verbal warning for failing to...

I have teens and you've

Posted on Sat, 01 Dec 2018

I have teens and you've articulated the current situation so well. There's a huge problem with drugs too, they're dirt cheap and used in the same way we used alcohol. The pressures, choices, the constant scrutiny, exposure to everything too...

I really enjoy these nature

Posted on Fri, 23 Nov 2018

I really enjoy these nature poems Rhiannon, partly because they focus on our native flora and fauna. In urban areas we are often surrounded by plants from all over the world which look pretty of course but lack the subtle balance of nature which...

I am 41 and I'm crying

Posted on Sun, 09 Aug 2015

I am 41 and I'm crying because I can't concentrate enough to write and this is really good and catchy and true. If only there were no more reasons to cry after seventeen!

It's incredible what these

Posted on Thu, 18 Apr 2019

It's incredible what these men and boys did each day, the risks and conditions, it must have been the comradarie that gone them through it and faith and trust as you say. The elderly man as an engineer had a huge responsibility but saw himself as...

Interesting piece. The tree,

Posted on Tue, 23 Apr 2019

Interesting piece. The tree, once an ordinary sapling, with so many stories to tell and still causing intrigue inside an old church. It's hard to believe punishing nagging wives and mean merchants in this manner was considered normal...well not...

Excellent poem, really made

Posted on Tue, 16 Apr 2019

Excellent poem, really made me think. There is something sad about the idea of us just passing through but that is what we are all doing isn't it. All those plastic Little Tyke wendy houses people buy for their kids are destined to outlive us all...

This is a story which runs

Posted on Thu, 04 Apr 2019

This is a story which runs along two time trails, the elderly woman searching through turbulent memory banks spanning decades. It reminds me of when my grandmother was lying in bed in her nineties, refusing food because she wanted to die, she was...

Posted on Thu, 28 Mar 2019

I love the comparison to glitter in a snow globe. How nice to walk along the sea to the supermarket and be seranaded by gulls, they don't have many tunes in their repetoire but I admire their enthusiasm and of course they are very busy at this...
