clouds secrete clear, cold threads, falling, coccoon round tree limbs shade flesh, lumens an airy tingle of tall grass, till rainbow orbs pool bodies...

Posted on Wed, 10 Mar 2021

I'm glad you lived life to the full, cramming in as much colour and joy as you could!  "thriving energy in this gorge filled with intrigue" is wonderful!  I remember always hoping to see ghosts in such places, or go through a portal. Your poem...

I like "wonders, wintered" it

Posted on Fri, 05 Mar 2021

I like "wonders, wintered" it sounds sort of dithery, the way they walk backwards and forwards for a bit, in their minds and bodies

Posted on Wed, 03 Mar 2021

I read this right after Onemorething's Wren, what a contrast! You took me straight to a station like a teleport machine, and your poem is so vivid it feels like my own memory now. I liked "shoals or iron" very much, also "thronging multitudes of...

Another book?!?!

I was into the fifties when read Soldier's Son. Am not at all sure could have stuck with the bleak side of it, nor been as uplifted by the philosophical (?) side of it before then?

I am sorry Onemorething to hijack...

Does it? Though won't help

Posted on Wed, 24 Feb 2021

Does it? Though won't help you sleep at all, I kept finding it was getting light and the birds were singing :0) I wonder if it will change your poems? The editing is TERRIBLE, but it doesn't matter.

I am longing to talk to someone about Soldier's Son :0) Be warned though, the Fitz books are impossible to put down, only start if you have a holiday. The trouble is after reading her books it is hard to stick to any others? Feel like a drug...
