'Somewhere like yesterday'

Posted on Mon, 11 Feb 2019

'Somewhere like yesterday' sad truth in these words and it's a beautiful poem too. Thanks for linking it to mine. I also love to see work inspired by other writers on here as I'm so often inspired myself.

I love 'pure pearls' Rhiannon

Posted on Mon, 04 Feb 2019

I love 'pure pearls' Rhiannon and also 'rich greening'. They are such a pure little flower braving the cold and warming the beds for the spring flowers to come.

It's so beautiful Rhiannon, I don't think I've ever seen one of these birds and your poem is a graceful tribute.

This is neat. It makes me think of all those molecules and everything else sleeping, unseen, there's so much we don't see. Looking forward to warmer times, mercury creeping.

Thanks Di_Hard I have removed

Posted on Tue, 29 Jan 2019

Thanks Di_Hard I have removed a repeated word. That's interesting about the rain, I hadn't realised it was such a factor. As for not letting your son have a bike, I'm not sure how you stop them if they are hell bent on it but the statistics are...

Posted on Sun, 13 Jan 2019

I think this is pure quality.

Posted on Fri, 07 Dec 2018

I think this is pure quality. It sounds so good in my head, I want to hear it read aloud by a man with a nice voice. Those solid consonants hold each other up without rubbing together, just like the branches of a tree Rhiannon.

I'm really enjoying these,

Posted on Sat, 10 Nov 2018

I'm really enjoying these, well-written and engaging. I too liked the description of the high heels stabbing the carpet, honestly why would you wear high heels in a care home, even if you were a rabied manager on a power trip. Your brother's...

Posted on Fri, 09 Nov 2018

Hi Di_Hard, I know, I can't even imagine the itchy wool uniform in the cold wet weather, it's difficult to even scratch the surface of what those soldiers suffered. I agree about society being eroded, we are slowly losing the building blocks of a...
