Sparkly Little Paula

I wrote this for International Women's Day but as often, I'm too late for the IP. It's based on a true story of my school friend, Paula Dale.

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 have teens and you've

Posted on Sat, 01 Dec 2018

I have teens and you've articulated the current situation so well. There's a huge problem with drugs too, they're dirt cheap and used in the same way we used alcohol. The pressures, choices, the constant scrutiny, exposure to everything too...

I really enjoy these nature

Posted on Fri, 23 Nov 2018

I really enjoy these nature poems Rhiannon, partly because they focus on our native flora and fauna. In urban areas we are often surrounded by plants from all over the world which look pretty of course but lack the subtle balance of nature which...

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!

Posted on Fri, 24 May 2024

You always take us with you,

Posted on Fri, 24 May 2024

You always take us with you, Rhiannon and it feels almost like a mini holiday, reading your poems and the way you capture nature's elements. I could swear my body temperature changes as you describe waterfalls and mists.

This is so beautiful,

Posted on Sun, 26 May 2024

This is so beautiful, illustrating a woman's life choices through the ages, how they adjust around her physical self and the mind adapts to accept the changes. No regretting or forgetting, her fading has an element of satisfaction. She lived her...

This is a suffocating read,

Posted on Wed, 22 May 2024

This is a suffocating read, something like a dream or nightmare in which you are trapped. The addition of a train only adds to the claustrophobic atmosphere and the feeling of life being out of control and bad times ahead. Look forward to the...
