comfort and joy (another go at this)

Pick of the Month

woods, late

walk in the company of streams through chill evening, day's ash, grey shadows clot into understanding night a deer starts awake, hastens to hide life...
Cherry

Be Leave

I'm tired as a bee buzzing against glass for cannot pass into sleep. The deep beyond thought. Unreached though mind's wings batter and long hours,...
Cherry

gloaming

Charcoal-soft dark calls, silk wings oil-easy under cinder blue. Llightless, sky heavies falls to tall birch tops' black lace twigs, pillared on slim...

Posted on Fri, 03 Jul 2020

I like this exchange very much! Abigail is getting much more self confident, too. Cleaning wounds and cooking supper. That she is worried about Buck because he is old reinforces that she is little, just having to grow up very fast. "All quick" I...

Uncomfortaby is my typo!!!!! Couldn't get the cut and paste bit to work. So sorry to send you looking. 

You must be boggling predictive text with this wonderful language! I imagine a fuse going somewhere with stuff like "felt his...

Posted on Sun, 28 Jun 2020

I had no idea maggots were called gentles, that is so horrid!!! I like your idea very much of flies being funeral directors too, and their "efficient fervour" even sounds buzzy/busy

Posted on Sat, 27 Jun 2020

Enjoyed this very much! I had never thought of water "slouching"! Particularly liked "the stream is a gurgle" and "one more slurp" which create idea of movement and soiund. You have created a character out of this stream, it's great!

Posted on Sat, 27 Jun 2020

Had to read this several times as so admiring of your wordplay was missing the meaning :0) The other night there was a program about co-writer of musical Alexander Hamilton, which reminded me of how you write, it is a rare and wonderfful gift to...

so many wonderful lines!

Posted on Sat, 27 Jun 2020

so many wonderful lines!

"thread light"

"distractions of reflections"

"mercuried blue"

"operates in flashes"

 

I like too how you dip in and out of rhyme like you are dipping into water to catch a fish...

Abundance is right! I love

Posted on Wed, 24 Jun 2020

Abundance is right! I love cats' ears too :0) Do you need to dig it up to make a meadow? It looks like you have a wonderful variety of  species right now! Maybe could try plug plants of things like scabious as they can be a bit tricky from seed (...

Posted on Sat, 20 Jun 2020

What a flickery poem! I didn't know the word Kairotic (you and Luigi are swelling my vocabulary like anything) but it is PERFECT  for the feeling of bonfires, they always seem momentous, the light like an armour you feel will protect you in...

This is gorgeous! I don't

Posted on Mon, 08 Jun 2020

This is gorgeous! I don't know how you make a few lines so full of space and light and freshness! I love "escape and rise" and "swells ripple", and the cosiness of "home" at the end, like a welcoming door. And you caught some beautiful wind in...

"Disguised as stillness" is

Posted on Fri, 19 Jun 2020

"Disguised as stillness" is wonderful. I always think herons are called Hubert as they look like a great uncle I saw at my brother's christening. Although I didn't know about herons then.
