Hero Or Zero (2)

Written during a bout of insomnia this is a sequel to my first offering that hopefully expands some of my thinking. The picture was taken during a charity walk.........have I always been a hero...no.

Hero or Zero?

I tried to get inside my own head...what IS a hero really?

I loved the line '...Ivy chains'  Why did it take so long for me to discover your writing?  Keep it turning.  That wheel of talent.

Truly uplifting and the ultimate test....................rereadable again and again.

I was truly moved.  By the poem, by the tribute and the sincerity of the writing.  I only wish I could write so beautifully.  Well done.

So powerful and so

Posted on Thu, 28 Jul 2016

So powerful and so frightening.  I still have a fear of being lonely even with my family around me.  Wonderful writing.  I felt as if I was inside Tilly's head watching and sharing her observations and thoughts. 

Well deserved recognition...

It was the 'life goes on...'

Posted on Wed, 10 Sep 2008

It was the 'life goes on...' part that got me.  I hate it when someone comes out with that supposed well meaning phrase.  It strikes me as the kind of thing someone says when it would have been better if they had kept their own counsel.

I always love poems that I can relate to.  We live in a tiny village in County Durham and just behind me are three fields leading to the local parish church.  The footpath passes our cottage and this poem could have been written there.

Errand Ahead

Posted on Tue, 22 Dec 2015

I agree with the others, it's beautiful.  Yet the best for me is 'errand ahead'.  How many of us stop and thing about the Christ Child's ultimate destination? I like to think of the nativity scene and the magnificence in it's humility, but also...

I don't know why, but I was taken back to images of the moonlight dancing on a lake at midnight.  I love poems that take me to a personal, private memory and you beautiful poem did that.  Loved it.

Posted on Sat, 28 Feb 2015

I was moved by this work.  I realised as I read it, it could have been me that the voice was speaking to.  I wasn't always a great partner and caused hurt in the past. Now, work like this reminds me I should have always been more sensitive,...

Posted on Mon, 26 Jan 2015

Ahh ! Fond memories of my teaching days.  I left the bullshiters to it last year.  The 'target setters' who are more bothered about looking good and their personal careers than those of the children.  No wonder the kids do say 'f**k you!' and...
