Posted on Wed, 16 Nov 2022

Hi Di, thanks for reading and commenting. It's hard to relate to those go-getter people, they do seem to achieve a lot but their achievements are perhaps 'microwaved'. Taking and giving time to appreciate is like living life in a slow cooker, I...

You have captured their sweetness beautifully. The pink and white hues are just like marshmallows, and skittering describes their growing habit perfectly. To me, field bindweed is the ultimate 'flower fairies' flower and I always enjoy spotting...

A beautiful and rich tribute

Posted on Sat, 01 Oct 2022

A beautiful and rich tribute to the first days of autumn. I really enjoyed the comparison with the sea, it's so clever, the rolling movement of the leaves and twigs in the wind is indeed like a shoal of fish. It's not quite fresh enough yet to...

Hi Di_Hard, thank you for commenting. It's fascinating that orcas are more emotionally complex than humans, the human narcissist in me wonders how this is possible. Everything is getting so weird, I agree but perhaps it was ever thus. What I...

Posted on Tue, 30 Aug 2022

Reminds me of the sky I saw earlier, low rolling clouds, dark against the blue. I get the sense of something foreboding, it could be too late for a cure but we can only be optimistic. I really enjoyed the last verse, 'or maybe I'm a feathered...

The word wicked, derived from Wiccan. I can't see anything too wicked here from June, except sacrificing a chicken, something KFC do on a gargantuan scale daily.

Posted on Fri, 15 Jul 2022
