Yes, so strange this majestic

Posted on Mon, 21 Jun 2021

Yes, so strange this majestic relic from ancient days, when worship and reverence for the sun, and especially at its high and low peaks at solstice, even while perhaps unaware of its importance for life on Earth then, keeps the Druids (my people...

I think not experiencing

Posted on Sun, 06 Jun 2021

I think not experiencing another dawn is, for me, the saddest anticipatory thought before entering oblivion, Rachel, representing the purest quality of being-in-the-world as it does. I think Tennyson said it best in his "Ah, sad and strange as in...

Posted on Mon, 07 Jun 2021

For me, the memory system in the later years is not a seething cauldron full of people and happenings from a long lineal past seeking conscious expression, that's for sure Jenny. Revisiting various chosen memories over the years seems to have...

I always feel like a poacher

Posted on Sun, 09 May 2021

I always feel like a poacher who never pays his dues when reading your superb poems without complimenting you on them afterwards with comments, Rachel. Your productivity amazes me too!

Yorkshire-born are a proud

Posted on Mon, 19 Apr 2021

Yorkshire-born are a proud and honest folk, which is reassuring, even for a Scot settling in the Dales! Here, there's a leaning towards the Teutonic with a hardly-discernible underlying dislike for Anglo-Saxon, though some origins, sadly, are...

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 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...
