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...

Thanks Rachel, and for the cherries, really appreciated. Last week there was snow and minus 12, today it's sunny and 15 degrees in the sun. Cycling there through a nature reserve felt really Spring-like.

Posted on Sun, 28 Feb 2021

Of many admired poems of yours, I like this one the most. For me, this type of interpretive poem using symbolic and/or specific tendencies in plants, or distinct attitudes and actions in animals, their primitive characteristics, perhaps in the...

Lovely piece of autobiographical writing, Jenny, such an enjoyable read, beautifully written. Some memories are special aren't they, function so well as representatives of certain times we need to revisit occasionally on our long journey. Well...

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2021

A strong and moving read; feels like the truth-revealing descriptions of a war or natural catastrophe correspondent, after a mud-surge perhaps, a journalist trying to gather and report news, evidence even, for an indifferent, or tired, world,...

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

Posted on Wed, 16 Sep 2020

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 Sat, 23 May 2020

Well, it was intermittent, but never-ending, unfortunately. A cold, calm approach was necessary to remain efficient, but the emotional effects were felt of course at the strangest of times, luckily, I too, had a debriefing therapist when needed....

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...
