Cherry

first day in senior school

Rain heavy air, clear, fresh colours drenched. I walk through clinging grasses like hands welcoming. Summer condensing on twig ends in rowan berries...
Gold cherry

calm before

trunk tethered galaxies of leaves wild weaves, wind owned. Waist high, light grained grasses spray. Green-good air an open mouth, bird-fled, waits...

This is a brilliant contrast,

Posted on Tue, 22 Dec 2020

This is a brilliant contrast, those who were once beasts of burden, but whose enjoyment of living brings joy while reinforcing our link with nature, the delight of children in the newborn foals. And their replacements, robots, small, vulnerable...

This seems very sad to me,

Posted on Mon, 21 Dec 2020

This seems very sad to me, particularly the last line, the only certainty in your poem full of  words about change - precarious, maybe, dripping, melting. Yet there is warmth all the way through - the snow can't get inside, where the cat is so...

Cedars are serene! Many years

Posted on Wed, 23 Dec 2020

Cedars are serene! Many years ago there used to be one on a walk I went on. I was trespassing, and always worried I would be told off, but under this tree the idea of ownership seemed irrelevent :0)

Posted on Mon, 14 Dec 2020

I love the last line! Also how you think of the tiny moving warmth of the snowbunting in that huge openness, its heart beating under the sky. And "delicate shivers" is wonderful, too, made my back tingle, The idea of how old the mountains are,...

No sounds in this poem. It

Posted on Sat, 12 Dec 2020

No sounds in this poem. It seems very peaceful and airy and languid, like dying in ibis spell would be like slipping gently under warm water and finding you could breathe. I do like and admire how you create feeling in your poems, giving an idea...
