I really enjoyed reading this

Posted on Wed, 26 Sep 2018

I really enjoyed reading this, it brought to life a typical suprmarket shift complete with misery and the type of characters which seem to crop up in most workplaces. It recall my own stint in 'provisions', I got a verbal warning for failing to...

Hi Rhiannon, these nature

Posted on Wed, 16 Oct 2019

Hi Rhiannon, these nature poems you write are so professional now and this is no exception. There's so much texture and the way you extend beyond the visual confines of the scene, 'enjoying the expanse as if they could fly' because that's how it...

What a descriptive snap shot

Posted on Tue, 07 May 2019

What a descriptive snap shot of the sea and its natural surroundings. I love the way you've included sound in this, the gentle booming, also the scent - of seaweed and of course the coastal flowers so beautiful at this time of year.

I really enjoy these nature

Posted on Fri, 23 Nov 2018

I am 41 and I'm crying

Posted on Sun, 09 Aug 2015

I am 41 and I'm crying because I can't concentrate enough to write and this is really good and catchy and true. If only there were no more reasons to cry after seventeen!

Hi Rhiannon. Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, some people cannot accept help or are so far gone that they don't know how to ask for it and yet those connected with them would have done anything to help.

Posted on Sun, 15 Dec 2019

This captures well the inner battle of sleeplessness. The ticking mind and aching body and then the inexplicable release into sleep. The tired bee analogy is perfect.

Superstition is addictive yes

Posted on Tue, 10 Dec 2019
