I loved this. The dark is velvet with moths...Great line. Some of these descriptions eg red earth are very familiar to me. The rain is such a double edged sword. Really enjoyed it.

Really clever how you managed

Really clever how you managed to put it in as a picture. It makes me think of Fred Astaire, who was very good at doffing and was equally charming and nifty.

Really good to read a poem by you again and it doesn't disappoint. So much in it. And the warning in the last two lines is cleverly done.

I guess things don't change

Posted on Fri, 27 Oct 2023

I guess things don't change (including that this is still a really good read) and that they haven't since time began. I guess the battle is not to give in to that, hard as it is, and that's a shared task. This really is a fantastic poem.

I lliked this, giving legionnaires a new battleground. It's sad but I don't find it depressing. And I like the poppy, despite our mixed perception of it.

Beautifully led from beginning to end - from darkness to bright as the sun. Loads of thought provoking descriptions. This one stood out for me - life's gripping secret, choice.

I clicked on this because I knew it would be a good one from you - and it is - and then found it was Elland which is where a long ago ancestor of mine was born, long before buses. He obviously walked to Rochdale instead. So many good observations...

Beautiful. I've seen those

Posted on Tue, 17 Jan 2023

Beautiful. I've seen those swooping over Bristol in the past. And it does always feel like something you want to share. This reminded me a bit of the lovely moment in Wind in the Willows where they see Pan.
