Superstition is addictive yes

Posted on Tue, 10 Dec 2019

Superstition is addictive yes. Friday 13th puts some people on edge and makes them look for the dark side in everything. 'Ears to hear, supporting power will make good in time.' words makes me instantly feel more relaxed.

I can really relate to this

Posted on Sun, 13 Oct 2019

I can really relate to this and the pleasure you derive from walking in the forest. I think the Japanese refer to it as a 'forest bath'.  I wonder if there could ever be a return of some of the creatures we've lost now that we have too many deer...

Hi Rhiannon. This reminds me

Posted on Fri, 27 Sep 2019

Hi Rhiannon. This reminds me of the cosy nights in, indoor heat and nice things to eat and all the glowing shades outside. We're so lucky aren't we, to have warm, clean houses and such a choice of food. Every season has its grey days, you're ...

Posted on Tue, 03 Sep 2019

Really interesting piece Di_Hard. These lines: 'use science to rock to and fro' and 'if we think we're at the top it's because others hold us up' particularly stand out. It all seems so precarious doesn't it, all it would take is a mad person...

Posted on Sun, 28 Jul 2019

I enjoyed the way the grass stalks run like threads through this poem and the way it highlights the complexities in nature which we take for granted every moment. Those black beetles appear this time of year don't they, incongruously huge and...
