Locked

Thanks airyfairy. They're

Posted on Sat, 28 Mar 2020

Thanks airyfairy. They're quite common I think, with a round furry body and the proboscis is like a needle, quite cute actually, well at least when you haven't seen many people for a while. You're right about our entitled stewardship of the...

I love the idea of the empty

Posted on Sat, 28 Mar 2020

I love the idea of the empty road, being like an eel, is it sloping? And the way you've animated your surroundings in the absence of human life. Suddenly the nature around us had greater significance because it carries on, flourishes, it's so...

I don't know how I missed

Posted on Sat, 07 Mar 2020

I don't know how I missed this, what a treasure. Brain scans have shown that looking into a forest  in full leaf is restorative, rather like sleep.  Access to safe, green spaces for all - and if that isn't possible then poems like this help a lot...

I really enjoyed this, it

Posted on Tue, 10 Mar 2020

I really enjoyed this, it brought back so many memories of feeling absolutely free on summer evenings with no worries and so many opportunities stretching out, and of course trees are the backdrop of life.

I like this a lot, it's

Posted on Sat, 07 Mar 2020

I like this a lot, it's unique and reminds me a bit of Hans Christian Anderson and the way he sometimes wrote from the perspective of an object. I also like the way you have avoided the cliche of exhibiting pride around damage.

Posted on Tue, 04 Feb 2020

This is very fine, especially the first verse, it made my mouth water. Even pavement cracks hold possibilities, I love. It's a shame people don't spend much time outside when it's cold in February because there is so much happening.

Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares

Posted on Tue, 11 Feb 2020

Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares is an example of everything which is wrong with the human race. I enjoyed this piece about the little conflicts that occur inside our heads and reasons behind them.  I can lose myself in the mug section in Homesense...

A fine tribute to these

Posted on Sun, 02 Feb 2020

A fine tribute to these incredible animals, to think they were once a staple part of our diet. I enjoyed the slippery, fluid movement throughout.  A shimmering length of muscle, who needs legs?
