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...

You've boldly ventured out on

Posted on Sat, 25 Jul 2020

You've boldly ventured out on trying to describe the phenomenon of memory here, even so, it does feel as though it's been written.... arrived at using some degree of personal, emotional experience rather than being universally semantic, which is...

I had it designated as 'no ©'

Posted on Mon, 27 Jul 2020

I had it designated as 'no ©' at the intro, Insert. One of many thousands of PR images from TV takes with no mention of restricted use or copyright.

For me, there is so much

Posted on Sun, 26 Jul 2020

For me, there is so much sense in this rant-type poem, David. Factual, controlled and carefully phrased keeps it both a frightening reminder of the dangerous and damaging sways of the mob as well as personal informative observation.

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...

Some lovely sentiments here,

Posted on Wed, 08 Jul 2020

Some lovely sentiments here, Penny4, that resonate like an echo being very much my own way of thinking when introspective too. With one difference, you're a 'night bird', I'm more a 'fresh in the early morning, raring to go' type! (Being an easy ...

There's a lot of information

Posted on Wed, 08 Jul 2020

There's a lot of information on this majestic ship's fate, Parson. Is it your presumed take on maritime history, or has her fate been reliably recorded somewhere? I like your style of writing when composing this type of descriptive poetry,...

Posted on Sat, 23 May 2020

Wow Rachel! Another side of your talented writing ability, and of you yourself, shown here. Using creative writing, especially poetry, to catharsise emotions of all types usually feels an unburdening process. But, on the other hand it easily goes...

Posted on Thu, 21 May 2020

Great poem, much enjoyed, Rachel, even if not fully understood, but I concur with all that's been said about its effect on other readers. Here, children that do well in spite of a bad start in home situation, are called Dandelion Kids (...
