The Train On Platform 4

I hate replacement buses on rail services, but this is not a rant.

The Whispering Winds Of Hate

Like a lot of my writing I started in one direction and ended up in another. Still, it qualifies for the Inspiration Point (I hope)

A Spiritual Scrooge Takes Stock

Charles Dickens was writing about me, he just didn't know it.
Cherry

Granny Glue

I lost a dear friend in September this year. His wonderful wife stuck with him through thick and thin. Hence 'Granny Glue' This poem is a tribute to a fantastic wife, grandmother and friend.
Gold cherry

Dear Adam & Eve

Imagine how shocked Adam & Eve would be at today...

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...

I for one will be waiting to read the next instalment.  I think this is cleverly written and gives you endless choices as to where it goes next .  Loved it.

Posted on Sun, 01 Jun 2014

I must have read hundreds of poems about WW1.  Indeed, I studied it briefly during my time at college.  Many are bitter and angry poems, but the beauty of this work is the simple, powerful question that for many is yet to be answered 'what for...

I remember the wall going up

Posted on Sat, 20 Dec 2014

I remember the wall going up and coming down.  As I read this, I thought about the many who tried and failed to cross the wall.  A great piece of writing.  Thank you

Posted on Mon, 08 Sep 2014

I too stumbled across this piece, but I am glad I did.  I offer no advice because I don't believe it needs it.  This was written from my favourite place - the bottom of your heart and it is a beautiful piece.

 

Thank you.

Suburban Sunset

Posted on Thu, 02 Oct 2014

Oh boy!  I wished I had come across this lovely piece of writing when I was still teaching!  This is an excellent piece of writing that could turn into so many stories. The key to getting people to read on, is to capture them in the first few...

I was taken back to my final

Posted on Thu, 25 Sep 2014

I was taken back to my final year in school (1970) and for some reason was put in the top set Maths Class.  I was hoplessly lost and my pen soon dropped to the desk ask the ball of energy that was the teacher went on.  I hated those days, but...

Posted on Fri, 26 Sep 2014

I don't know why, but I was taken back to an evening class for so-called beginners Welsh.  Truth is, it was a gossip club and very clicky.  I couldn't handle most of what was said and it was clear that most of the class were far beyond me.  So I...

Belonging etc

Posted on Fri, 19 Sep 2014
