Oh Jenny, I know how these

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

Oh Jenny, I know how these tragic times, that never entirely relent, can come back in recurring sequences from corners of the mind, normally shut off from the everyday, so one can move on from the pain. But, I believe as Rachel there is...

Feels very much loss of a

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

Feels very much loss of a loved one in romantic failure rather than in life, (or even just loss of romantic love as a concept) and consequent loss of self-esteem with it, Jenny. I'm often wrong though. Beautifully worded and much enjoyed.

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

I think I'm more fox than human....when in survival mode! Like foxes, I avoid humans now, keeping at least a metre away! Beautiful write, Rachel, you capture so much, the shift to applying to self, is skilfully achieved, always needs this n'est...

Some deeper memories here, Ed

Posted on Tue, 04 Aug 2020

Some deeper memories here, Ed, put together in some wonderful phrases that are so recognizable if one has a similar history. White Ys everywhere for the TitBit pussies made them as sexy as white marble statues! You deserving more acreage as your...

It's a comforting thought

Posted on Mon, 03 Aug 2020

It's a comforting thought that, beyond reason, we seek and expect to meet, demons and monsters where none exist! And perhaps the ones we meet are usually unfair projections of ourselves, from peering in the mirror, when confidence is low.

So true, Penny4, witnesses

Posted on Sun, 02 Aug 2020

So true, Penny4, witnesses reporting on the same scenario, often recollect entirely different versions of what happened depending on their past history, for cognition is half of what you perceive and half of what your memory, your past...

Posted on Sat, 01 Aug 2020

This feels very special, Rachel, and as usual a fine poem. I would venture though to suggest just one thing that might improve the feeling of continuity turning from empathy for this defenceless creature to the effects it had on the circumstances...

Earlier, better times, Jenny,

Posted on Sat, 01 Aug 2020

Earlier, better times, Jenny, somewhat joyfully remembered, but mournfully too, in knowing they'll never come again, belonging to carefree youth as they do, or seem to do, in hindsight. Some fine lines here, and much enjoyed.

Interesting poem, Rachel.

Posted on Sat, 01 Aug 2020

Interesting poem, Rachel. Vast differences in the way whole varieties of organisms communicate and who knows how sophisticated they are. Triboelectrical! Hahaha! I made up a word to suit something I wrote once 'weltergeist', which I used for '...

Thanks Rachel, always worried

Posted on Fri, 31 Jul 2020
