Hi Rhiannon,

It certainly can be high speed air sweeping past. I liked some of the alliteration in this. It works well !

Hi,

This is a lovely poem, Rhiannon. Redolent of a pleasant walk I should think. I have heard many good things about Ross-on-Wye and your poem reinforced these ideas !

This says a lot in very few

This says a lot in very few words. You will not be put off by 'loveless lips', but seek some reality. Sex not love has no heart !

I like bird poems and this

Posted on Wed, 06 Apr 2016

I like bird poems and this one is no exception. I like the easy sense of facility with words tumbling into one another too!

This is very attractive

Posted on Mon, 28 Mar 2016

This is very attractive writing, getting more gritty towards the end :'she drilled a mineshaft into the side of my skull'. I like a lot of the poetic phrases.
