Bee's Journey - (the last leg)

We take it for granted that to make a journey is to travel from A to B, but it's not always as simple as that. There are often so many stops and...

Diagnosis a True Beginning

I remember the look on my face as it melted and slid like The Scream to a puddle about my shocked toes off the floor. And in that cracked second I...

The Surgeon - (dedicated to my surgeon, Mr. Haneif - who was so kind)

He guides us past the earth's drop and catches us lightly in a fall of stars; flies us through a flare that sears bright through our hearts at the...

Hi Vera.

Posted on Sat, 19 Jul 2014

Hi Vera.

Three poems written as the heading suggests, with an apparent lightness which belies the terrors portrayed. The imagery is outstandingly vivid and as I expect from you with the description which assaults all senses, from the...

Posted on Tue, 22 Mar 2016

This is written in a way that opens up feelings kept mostly from the surface, at the same time as exploring and understanding the motives behind other peoples' emotional responses, exaggerated by the fact of young motherhood. There's those...

There's something in this

Posted on Sat, 12 Mar 2016

There's something in this that shows a certain lack of regret - almost wishing for some. 'try to wish I'd loved you...' The regret, if any, that being too young, you missed something that looking back now seems like a good idea.

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
feathered my cheek, or

stutter of your eyelids 
as you knelt to...

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.

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.

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...
