A wise walrus Luigi, we've

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...

Posted on Sat, 17 Oct 2020

A superb poem, Rachel, from an insightful dream I read. Feels so tenderly real and raw, but  can be interpreted as a hope giving prophecy too. Wishing you well with it all.

A poem of cautious anticipation, Jenny, as Winter approaches again, from an aging perspective, using sadly remembered comparisons when managing it all was so much easier? Briefly written, but held together by a nostalgic red thread. Let's hope...

Posted on Mon, 14 Sep 2020

I like the way you accentuate these specialised bird's function, or role, in the nurturing chain of ever-reproducing woodland, Rachel. Seed dispersal being an important part of ecological renewal and the need to be spread further in changing...

Strange time-lag seeing light

Posted on Sat, 12 Sep 2020

Strange time-lag seeing light arriving from distant stars, but the moon, so near, and seemingly larger these days? Lovely poem, full of movement and light. One of my old special military skills back in the days was Night Navigation (without any ...

Posted on Thu, 10 Sep 2020

Such great poetry, Rachel,
and as always a pleasure to carefully read through. I knew of the BM phenomena, having once spent the night on a live mattress in a B & B in Hull! No, joking apart, I like the way you apply it's action over to...

The magic and purity of

Posted on Mon, 07 Sep 2020

The magic and purity of childhood innocence and face-value wonder soon evaporate as another rules-based reality creeps in and far too quickly takes over. This is why I have such high regard for vulnerable people, who still, perhaps foolishly,...

Beautiful poem, Jenny. Many will recognise the times, and lament their passing.
