My stories

The Evil Trap

Okay! 35mph in a 30mph....bang to rights. Lets hope it's another thirty nine years before the second one....

Never Satisfied

A tongue in cheek rant at the union battles of the sixties and seventies (fictional)

A Siren Sang Of Love

I refer to the beauty in a siren call and I mean only that in this poem of love.

At Long Last

I was inspired by Onemorething and the piece he/she wrote. I always loved to walk the empty corridors after we had dismissed the children.

Rediscovering Living

The first day of the school holidays when teachers and parents swap frowns and smiles. I have been on both sides and I say " let them both rest" My lot now and parents in September....

Thank you for your feedback.   No, I don't like social media as a rule and do not have Facebook.  I'm happy for those that want it, just not for me. My life has been quite a busy and a complex one.  i often wonder about faces from the past. ...

I didn't intend  to read from start to finish, but I did and loved it.  I know that feeling that comes back in an instant when a smell hits my senses.  I still wonder at the completness of the experience that includes the emotion of that moment...

I so totally agree with your poem.  When I read a poem and wish 'I'd written it' then it comes from gratitude for putting into words what I have felt. 

Eyes say so much and it is true that they too can lie, but often they reveal a deeper...

Not just the poem, but the photo transported me.  You paint pictures with words and I am grateful for this beautiful piece. I rarely write about the countryside, but poems like thiis are not only beatifully crafted but an inspiration.

Classroom Assistants are

Posted on Thu, 21 Feb 2019

Classroom Assistants are vastly underated and underpaid.  Their value to any truly colaboratively minded teacher is invaluable.

I always listen to their advice and observations; they have a much clearer picture of the individual student...

You've done it again

i loved this poem.  I spent years splashing cash thinking it would impress.  Then my daughter came along with gifts that meant so much and I was transformed.  A message of love in each gift.  Caring...a huge plus in the world  of giving.

This is an amazing piece of writing.  The only thing wrong with it is that I wish that I'd written it.  I write a lot of stuff about the Cosmos and time itself.  This hits so many different levels and resonates in each.

It is more than...

Sadly no. It was good old Google images,  but as a child I would walk the lonely beaches and wonder at what the tide had brought in...where it came from, what stories it had to tell...I think you get my drift ...

I love poems that evoke imanges and this one (for me) is full of them.  I was also taken to 'Nowhere Man' by the Beatles and 'Crossroads' by Don McLean. I guess its the roads connection, but for me poems that take my mind on a journey are worth...

Your work never dissapoints and I simply adored the rhythm of this poem.  For some reason I was transported back to a famous piece of work 'the night mail' and the rhythm in that. A really inspiring piece of work Rhiannon.  Well done...again!
