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...

Enjoyed this. The idea of getting dirty among nature while somehow getting your mind cleaned all at the same time. I would love a glimpse of blue sky against the bare bones of trees.

Hi Rhiannon, these nature

Posted on Wed, 16 Oct 2019

Hi Rhiannon, these nature poems you write are so professional now and this is no exception. There's so much texture and the way you extend beyond the visual confines of the scene, 'enjoying the expanse as if they could fly' because that's how it...

What a descriptive snap shot

Posted on Tue, 07 May 2019

What a descriptive snap shot of the sea and its natural surroundings. I love the way you've included sound in this, the gentle booming, also the scent - of seaweed and of course the coastal flowers so beautiful at this time of year.

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!

Posted on Tue, 04 Feb 2020

This is very fine, especially the first verse, it made my mouth water. Even pavement cracks hold possibilities, I love. It's a shame people don't spend much time outside when it's cold in February because there is so much happening.

Really lovely and I like that

Posted on Tue, 11 Feb 2020

Really lovely and I like that you've included the conflicted in- betweeness of February and how it can pull us in either direction in terms of climate. Snowdrops are a wonder. I love 'threaded through the green needle of a stem'
