Posted on Fri, 15 Oct 2021

Thanks Rachel, really chuffed

Posted on Tue, 12 Oct 2021

Thanks Rachel, really chuffed again at achieving POTD. You can never be sure how a submission will be received; I suppose humour is a major defence aid when involved hands-on with the subject matter, it helps keep the necessary distance to it....

Posted on Mon, 11 Oct 2021

Very atmospheric and richly described poem that keeps the reader loitering in that ancient landscape, in spite of sounds of scary Baskerville monsters breaking the peace, Jenny; ground and hanging tree moss is everywhere here too, feels...

Posted on Tue, 05 Oct 2021

A skilfully written poem, Paul, about the arisal of incidental thoughts while being influenced by the rawness and cosiness of being in rugged autumn weather. All sorts of drama can be conjured up by a mind soaking up the ongoing atmosphere, the...

Posted on Thu, 30 Sep 2021

As a life-long bitten angler, Jenny, a well-constructed poem that really appealed to me; these lived in studies give a greater appreciation of Nature's diversity and the thrills and struggles we think this great multitude of creatures experience...

Posted on Mon, 27 Sep 2021

Yes, Ewan, thank goodness the maggot angler has been replaced by the magnet fisherman, who are hauling them out in droves! But, it's a losing battle!

You were certainly aware of all the pleasant things happening on this particular river, Jenny, a whole compendium of natural wonder seen in peaceful observation by a sensitive-moment poet. With more rain, the pathside draining ditches here are...

A very special poem that must

Posted on Fri, 24 Sep 2021

A very special poem that must have been hard to write, but also comforting when finally written by seeing how well you managed to choose the words you wanted saying. The title really suits the whole beauty of the piece. The slow loss of a person...

Posted on Thu, 23 Sep 2021

A fine poem that's a real wake-up call too. How majestic huge plant growth can be, learnt a lot more about them reading this well-constructed write, a strong poem to honour a strong tree that stands so proud! Had hoped your Brummie, Paul, would...

Yes, a skilfully crafted poem, Rhiannonw, from a master wordsmith. I was there, so realistic! I think I squashed two imaginay bugs on my neck while reading! Great book, inspired poem, and much enjoyed.
