For me, this fine poem

Posted on Fri, 31 Jul 2020

For me, this fine poem composed with your usual observational skills feels much more complete with the observer's self-specific thoughts gradually brought more into it to convey the main messaging. This most voracious of scavengers used as a...

I admire as always your skilled story-telling craft using the power and subtlely of finely-worded poetry. You use it in that special way of yours to highlights the sad change when life goes from reality to myth, you communicate well the feeling...

Yeh, thanks,they've got a lot

Posted on Wed, 29 Jul 2020

Yeh, thanks, they've got a lot to answer for, the peace-disturbing swine! Included 'love' and 'humour' though, it helps to absorb the gnawing pain, and keep it all on a friendly lilt (a cheerful tune in Scottish)!

I often wonder, Parson, how

Posted on Tue, 28 Jul 2020

I often wonder, Parson, how different animals and birds, even small insects experience us; we, the weird humans, who constantly change appearances and sounds, who appear to watch them to see if edible, who water, and throw bread, on their habitat...

Posted on Wed, 15 Jul 2020

Lovely poem, Penny4, and a fine tribute to these majestic trees. Love the leaf greeting you in some sort of acceptance and 'Listen to their soft hello' is a perfect and apt ending, says it all. I saw a tv programme recently about healthy Eastern...

Yes, about loss, Agno?

Posted on Sat, 11 Jul 2020

Yes, about loss, Agno? Willing to put up with a critical partner, if only they could reappear again, the presence of the physical person being more important than how they behaved. To me, well-written, saying so much about the importance of...
