Posted on Wed, 13 Jun 2018
Brilliant choice. I like the rhymes, how they're not obvious, they sort of pull at you like light on moving water. As the poem is moving. To start with all I noticed was how beautiful the sound is. But the meaning is beautiful too when I read it...Read full comment

Posted on Wed, 20 Jun 2018
The most helpful advice I got, though I couldn't understand it at the time, is to realise you have choices. It's only so bad if you feel trapped.

And it was so satisfying to...Read full comment

I like this too, but had to read it a few times to realise what you were saying. Found myself putting in line breaks? I do like the idea behind it and all the descriptions very much?

Posted on Wed, 06 Jun 2018
My partner believes dogs to be spirit guides. Duko seems to be guiding the narrator to a more peaceful place, helping him to accept a horrible truth rather than put life on hold while hoping for the impossible. I like that the two people who have...Read full comment

I love the sense of movement
Posted on Fri, 08 Jun 2018
I love the sense of movement you have achieved with the rhymes and matching vowels:
