One of those pieces which had the rare effect of making me feel as if I was being squeezed while reading but in a good way. It's divine.

Brilliant ending. I hadn't

Posted on Tue, 16 Nov 2021

Brilliant ending. I hadn't heard the word ecocide before. It feels hopeless but as Di-Hard said, that is the worst, most defeatist way to address it. My kids are adults now, I worry for their kids. People come into the garden centre where I work...

I felt this lowering my blood

Posted on Thu, 18 Nov 2021

I felt this lowering my blood pressure. Your poem has class, grace and an element of nocturnal escapism. I wish I had the stamina to stay awake all night and be a part of this magic world.

Beautiful tribute to our

This made me laugh a lot! 'Mad as a wet hen' and all the things people you have lived with for too long which over time become 'disgusting'.

Wonderful poem. So depressing

Wonderful poem. So depressing  that this has happened in such a short space of time. Many companies, governments simply making noises about tackling climate change and yet the amount of plastic in the industry I work in is frankly mind boggling...

Beautiful and fitting tribute

Posted on Mon, 19 Apr 2021

Beautiful and fitting tribute to three delightful flowers. I love 'fairy skirt' I have a few in a damp patch which they love, even a white one amoung the snakey purples, they really are otherwordly flowers.  And those wood anenomes matt-white...
