that's beautiful! I love

Posted on Thu, 09 May 2019

that's beautiful! I love these walking poems! I have never read anything like them, how you make a feeling of walking, place and moment come alive with rhythm and aliteration, more vivid even than your lovely photo

 I enjoyed this very much!

Posted on Mon, 06 May 2019

 I enjoyed this very much!  All I know about Romans is vague memories of I Claudius on telly. You must have done lots of research to make everything seem so real!

I tried for ages before

Posted on Sat, 04 May 2019

I tried for ages before reading, to guess what the title was about but failed utterly, it's brilliant! And how "crumbs" could be both an expression of annoyance and, literally crumbs. And how you show the real time concentration with "care..."...

Enjoyed this very much. Words

Posted on Tue, 30 Apr 2019

Enjoyed this very much. Words of a poem describing how words in a recipe are not enough, but the poem works brilliantly. It's beautiful and sad and true

There is so much to this poem

Posted on Wed, 24 Apr 2019

There is so much to this poem. The sense of movement all through, and how you start off outside and move through the window, curtains, even the bed clothes, into the space beside you. How outside is full of life with the crickets, yet deep inside...

Having spent time this

Posted on Tue, 23 Apr 2019

Posted on Tue, 23 Apr 2019
