Posted on Fri, 14 Aug 2015

lovely to read more of your prose :-) little flourishes like 'watched a mist that slowly rose to fill The Devil’s Punchbowl.' add so much, it is a v evocative, thoughtful piece and interesting to hear of social dynamics at the time. the chemical...

Posted on Fri, 26 Jun 2015

yeah really enjoy being transported into your wanders, there's so much to appreciate in this poem - 'steep green sloping mounds surround' has such a (again transportive) roll to it, 'chaffinch or chats darting from the gorse/ and on the top a sea...

this all came together really

Posted on Sun, 28 Jun 2015

this all came together really well! liked the spark to try something and the execution. think your writing always feel v vivid and alive - lots of little attentive details 'crumples limply in my mouth.' from part 1, use of sound throughout - `...

lovely diction and expression

Posted on Thu, 25 Jun 2015

Posted on Sat, 13 Jun 2015

Posted on Sat, 13 Jun 2015

hi eb some beautiful diction&lovely word combinations and the stanza beginning 'I thought I sensed breath on my neck', leading to ending, was so close and vivid and full of regret. v neat and pretty but quietly devastating. v much enjoyed.
