My take on your new extended

Posted on Wed, 13 May 2020

My take on your new extended riverbank story Ld:
Action! Controlling the bank he's face-pushed through until riddled with 'tell tell signs' like Edam cheese, King Rat scurried proudly, but mostly improperly through and eventually up...

Posted on Fri, 15 May 2020

Presumably, Andy would teach you knots too - useful - stops you drifting away and over and too far beyond the weir(d), or even worse, over the dam(n) good it is, Ld, intriguing read and I like this new floating style of yours. Yes, spinning solo...

Posted on Wed, 13 May 2020

Houseboats, alcoholature, and esoterica do not mix well moored by the willows LD! You have this skill of being able to let just few words paint an action picture of cartoon magnitude. I suspect though this is saying a lot more than I enjoy...

Struggling with a mutual

Posted on Wed, 13 May 2020

Struggling with a mutual tendency towards the spiritual, of course I would want to read your work too Theresa, and it's a rewarding mouth-watering journey that leaves a whole host of tastes in the palate! For me, use of colours, spices, and...

Posted on Mon, 11 May 2020

I did think this was a much thumbed photo carried around that's fading with the years, but not sure whether to trust my impressions any more. I've no qualms with referring to your work as wonderful poetry, for it's a joy to read and feel the...

Posted on Fri, 08 May 2020

A treat to read as usual, Rachel. Yes, strands hardening before breezes turns their traps into visual patterns, for dust is the spider's worst enemy, lucky they're sticky on hard contact and entangle a struggling meal! Strange how they have a...

Sorry for the delay in answering Kristi, long shifts just now. I looked up that remarkable woman, Jill Price, with her episodic memory not dissipating, or condensing, into larger semantic descriptions, as it does for most of us, that is, for ...

Posted on Tue, 05 May 2020

No, it would still refer back to 'I had'? I thought 'given', 'vain', 'rain', resonated quite well; 'I had handed...' is not so bad with distance between. It could be 'supplied time travellers with guide books' if you don't mind changing word ...

Impressed how a round mouth

Posted on Wed, 06 May 2020

Impressed how a round mouth full of tunnelling teeth with a long slimey tail can instil so much inspirational enthusiasm to enable you to compose this excellent poem about them, honouring their place in the food chain, Rachel! (I wonder if...

Posted on Sun, 03 May 2020

I've been reading and appeciating your 'feelings' and 'impressions' poetry for some time now, onemorething, of which, this is typically a rewarding example. Just wondering why you used 'centimetres' instead of 'inches and miles', to keep ...
