Nature is so beautifully

Posted on Wed, 25 Aug 2021

Nature is so beautifully strange, Rachel, as magical as all such phenomena that awaken superstition in folklore, such a magical poem too with your pen interposing these two aspects so aptly and skilfully. I agree, one of your best, a real...

Oh Jenny, what a beautiful

Posted on Mon, 23 Aug 2021

Oh Jenny, a beautiful poem! The sheer deepening of commitment going on inside while composing and writing handwritten love letters? All lost in today's love relationships via sms messaging concluding with heart emogees. Digitally visual, but then...

Yes, Paul, not an easy moment

Posted on Tue, 17 Aug 2021

Yes, Paul, not an easy moment for parents in turn, the final strivings towards less dependency though, hopefully never full out; full of ambivalent feelings as to whether it means a good or bad job with upbringing? As to one's own, I remember...

Posted on Tue, 17 Aug 2021

The soothing effect of getting out into, and just absorbing, the Natural world seems to be a necessary part of healthy aging, Jenny? Like your allotment photo, t'would make a good watercolour. The poem's a joy to read as usual. Funny, here, we've...

Posted on Sun, 08 Aug 2021

Jenny, this is brilliant, the developed idea, the structure of the composition, how you put it all together. I felt the real spirit of the man as a great poet in your work as I read it through, not an easy thing to achieve. Imagine having a...

Posted on Tue, 20 Jul 2021

What fabulous music, and what skill and authentic honesty to be able to express those nightmarish feelings and visualisations in a way that enables the listener to in some way relive the mental hell they evoked! Old Russian music at its best....

Posted on Wed, 07 Jul 2021

Wonderful piece of versed contemplation, Jenny, capturing the moment, and too, the memories the setting opportunely awoke when relaxed attention allowed them to slip into consciousness. A empathic poet's inspiration-seeking, freedom leap and...

Posted on Thu, 01 Jul 2021

Beautiful concise poem with incidental rhyme, describing this periodic, regulated time so precisely. Now I'm retired, the days seem to go rapidly by in this fashion, although here, an enormous sun-lit moon refuses to allow the 'all is dark' phase...

Posted on Thu, 01 Jul 2021

I've always wondered Jenny, if a landscape, its slow natural development over a long history, the long struggle of its locally-based people in achieving/forming what it's become today, is beyond the atmospheric feel, appreciation even, of later...
