I agree, this is clever. And how many of us, from whichever country or background, once we got onto the millionaire's boat would care less about the little boats, that moment of panic and survival gone? I wonder who the Queen aspires to be....

I can't tell you how touched

Posted on Thu, 23 Jul 2015

I can't tell you how touched I am that you remembered this and have highlighted it through my poem. Thank you so much. I don't think I should take credit for any campaigning though. It's a very easy and small thing to put the story and the poem ...

Great poem. I loved the coldest star line. It gives the great feeling of distance and unreachabiltiy]....oh I can't spell it and I'm not even sure if it's a word anyway! Unreachable will do. Propaganda in every country, I would say.

What a reawakening. I liked this a lot and looked up where Tobermorey is - looks beautiful. Really liked the line about losing the arrows. Lovely ending.

Posted on Sat, 25 Nov 2017

I think this has struck a chord with all of us. It's very clever, seems well thought out even though you say it's automatic. I sometimes think that so many children are unhappy in school and aren't aware that each other is. It can be a cruel...

Congratulations. I liked this

Posted on Thu, 06 Jul 2017

Congratulations. I liked this, it has the pace of someone sitting back in a  chair on a veranda. I like how you are writing easily and feeling surprised by that. Probably the way we write best is the one that comes naturally so just go with it...
