R reading this in the early

Posted on Fri, 08 May 2015

I'm reading this in the early hours because I woke and couldn't sleep, and it's got me in bits. Especially -

'and a moth

Such a perfect flow to this,

Posted on Fri, 01 May 2015

Such a perfect flow to this, Ed. To take a tiny detail and examine it from all aspects and see it in all colours to create a gem of art like this takes a talent for seeing deceptive simplicity. Every detail is developed so smoothly, till the end...

Mixed with grief's delusion,

Posted on Wed, 21 Jan 2015

Mixed with grief's delusion, there's a sense of hard reality in this. Suiside is such a hard loss to come to term with, and his death would be viewed by others as either, him not being able to cope with the grief, or him wanting to be with her,...

Posted on Wed, 01 Oct 2014

Reading this is like contemplating a painting, where you can imagine you hear the sounds around it. The last stanza feels wistful to me. 

'Morning peels back 

under their wings;' I loved that. There's something about their leaving...

Hi BR. 

Your poem is so delightfully surreal that it shouldn't make sense, but worryingly, it does to me. I love the opening stanza - starting out with childlike simplicity 'I closed my eyes on the sunshine at a chair', and apparently...

Hi Ed. 

Interesting theory - you really have turned religion in general on it's head here. I guess there is something in it being about people using religion as an excuse to carry out atrocities, along with so much hypocracy. A lot of it...

Hi CM.

You got every tiny action without even telling it. 'Mum stood in the doorway between kitchen and hall and frowned at me short-sightedly' - I can see that expression.

'although the kitchen was warm and full of the aroma of...

Hi jolono.
