On trees, sky high blossom's pure, untouchable pink. Fallen, fresh soft coolness mixes with dust and thorns.

I hope Shirley finds happiness in your book. At the moment she feels like someone searching up and down a corridor looking  for a door that has been blocked off and papered over. I am very interested to see how you develop the characters who can...

Oh Jane! I wish I could have read this when I was 12-13. It reminded me so much of how I was. Know now it was OCD. Remember my Mum screaming at methat I should be locked up, the panic attacks when she'd storm in and kick and push things out of...

I liked the description of Brooksy.

Motorbikes are scary. Before we lived together my partner rang me to say he was in the road after crashing his in the rain. His leg was never the same. The person who fixed our windows' hand wouldn't...

Richly deserved, it's

Posted on Fri, 18 Jan 2019

Richly deserved, it's BEAUTIFUL, could feel the sweet air and see the colours. Is so interesting how you combine time into it, not just the rhythm of poetry but of your day. They seem sort of like Richard Long sculptures only not so hard....
