Interesting piece. The tree,

Posted on Tue, 23 Apr 2019

Interesting piece. The tree, once an ordinary sapling, with so many stories to tell and still causing intrigue inside an old church. It's hard to believe punishing nagging wives and mean merchants in this manner was considered normal...well not...

Excellent poem, really made

Posted on Tue, 16 Apr 2019

Excellent poem, really made me think. There is something sad about the idea of us just passing through but that is what we are all doing isn't it. All those plastic Little Tyke wendy houses people buy for their kids are destined to outlive us all...

Posted on Thu, 04 Apr 2019

This is a story which runs along two time trails, the elderly woman searching through turbulent memory banks spanning decades. It reminds me of when my grandmother was lying in bed in her nineties, refusing food because she wanted to die, she was...

Gosh, is this a true story?

Posted on Sun, 07 Apr 2019

Gosh, is this a true story? It would certainly ring true for many people who've put others needs before their own until their stuffing has gone all lumpy only to be dumped like an old worn-out toy. Love twins...more like the evil twin. I enjoyed...

Posted on Thu, 28 Mar 2019

Beautiful Rhiannon. The description of young lambs is dancing with their knobbly knees is perfect and spring wouldn't be spring without daffodils. They look so natural growing in the field in your photos, in contrast to my local council which...

Wonderful tribute to a

Posted on Fri, 22 Mar 2019

Wonderful tribute to a prickly beauty. Bee-full I love. One of the best smells I've ever experienced was on a coastal path in Pembrokeshire in May, the sun was out and the gorse scented the air, to me it was not unlike Pina Colada. Generally the...

Posted on Sun, 17 Mar 2019

It's a fail of a tale we teach our kids. Bad deeds will be punished, if not in life then in hell, look around it's easy to tell, the few reap what the many broke their backs to sow with next to nothing there to show.
