Posted on Mon, 03 Aug 2020

A wise walrus Luigi, we've got to get our fingers out now, and reverse this pollution of the seas and beaches. Superb, uncompromised rhyme, and told in your concise and relevant style. You're on form, and enjoyed the read, even if a sad...

Posted on Sun, 17 May 2020

A sometimes poignant, but mostly entertaining, humorous read, had me chuckling right through it. I kept on having to readjust the picture that was forming in my mind as the next sentence changed the whole premise. Full of small anecdotes that...

Beautifully structured poetry

Posted on Sat, 08 Aug 2020

Beautifully structured poetry, Rachel, with its lead in observations opening out into philosophic thoughts awoken; gives extra quality by expanding the descriptions into another dimension like you've done so especially well here. Much enjoyed!...

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

Thanks Rachel. I think Art, Dance, Music, and Poetry can all be spiritual emanations magnified, but that anything spiritual stays within, and ends with each particular performance or finished work. The only thing that can be transferred to others...

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

Oh Jenny, I know how these tragic times, that never entirely relent, can come back in recurring sequences from corners of the mind, normally shut off from the everyday, so one can move on from the pain. But, I believe as Rachel there is...

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

Feels very much loss of a loved one in romantic failure rather than in life, (or even just loss of romantic love as a concept) and consequent loss of self-esteem with it, Jenny. I'm often wrong though. Beautifully worded and much enjoyed.

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

I think I'm more fox than human....when in survival mode! Like foxes, I avoid humans now, keeping at least a metre away! Beautiful write, Rachel, you capture so much, the shift to applying to self, is skilfully achieved, always needs this n'est...

Some deeper memories here, Ed

Posted on Tue, 04 Aug 2020

Some deeper memories here, Ed, put together in some wonderful phrases that are so recognizable if one has a similar history. White Ys everywhere for the TitBit pussies made them as sexy as white marble statues! You deserving more acreage as your...

It's a comforting thought

Posted on Mon, 03 Aug 2020

It's a comforting thought that, beyond reason, we seek and expect to meet, demons and monsters where none exist! And perhaps the ones we meet are usually unfair projections of ourselves, from peering in the mirror, when confidence is low.

So true, Penny4, witnesses

Posted on Sun, 02 Aug 2020

So true, Penny4, witnesses reporting on the same scenario, often recollect entirely different versions of what happened depending on their past history, for cognition is half of what you perceive and half of what your memory, your past...
