Solstice

I like my winter solstice joke, I can't wait until the day comes along, When I get to say to all my friends, I'm as honest as the day is long.

I like the rhythm this has, and the kind of inspirational note that it finishes on, which is built up towards over the course of the poem.

Lovely.  Beautifully captured portrait of abuse and its scars. Those last lines finish it on a strong note.

Posted on Wed, 18 Dec 2019

Actually, on its own I think this poem says a lot. At least to me it speaks about the analysing and over-analysing of literature/art until its leached of all its beauty and whatever it's really trying to say. Tidily and cleverly expressed.

Posted on Thu, 19 Dec 2019

Poetic and yet raw, this one packs a solid punch. Some really attention-getting phrases ('tiny wind-slapped lives' 'thousand-sided eyes' 'wandering lost through leg forests') that strike a perfect chord in getting their message - their feeling -...

Beautiful stuff. As soon as I caught that bit about the 'drunken filigree of midnight', I knew i had to read this poem. It's power-packed and full of energy and evocative, challenging writing.

Nice, well written.  Getting the rhythm and rhyme to come together naturally, and with a point to make, without sounding at all forced is not an easy task.
