A beautiful image, sitting

Posted on Sun, 12 May 2019

Posted on Thu, 09 May 2019

As well as the wonderful descriptions you get in these poems, they are always so well constructed, so that the way the words are used, as much as the words themselves, help the reader to see what you see.  Another beauty, Rhiannon.

I really enjoyed this, and then reading about the background to it made it even more poignant.  What a wonderful memorial to your relative.

I am Delilah, and this is being typed by the servant of myself and Zsa Zsa.  I have a new game for Omar.  Get your local vet to put either you or Mitsie on special expensive food that only the one of you is supposed to have, and then swap bowls...

Posted on Thu, 18 Jun 2015

Welcome to the site.  And what better debut on a writing site than a horror story all about words!  I think quite a few of us probably suffer from Etyopathomania.  I really, really want to find a copy of the Humongous Collation of Proverbs and...

Posted on Mon, 03 Jun 2019
