You Looked Like You Had Lost

At low tide, the stillest sleep, and the vastness of this beach exposed. Memories littered, stories, half buried. I think that’s when I saw your eyes...

Legend of the Pah (6)

Right now it didn’t matter that he was growing older. The very act of starting up his old motor and taking it out felt rebellious and liberating, he...

The early hours of the morning were a magic time, he felt, when most people exist in another realm, sleeping and oblivious. The world was an empty...

I like this poem, it speaks

Posted on Sun, 29 May 2022

I like this poem, it speaks of the coiled spring like energy that lives inside all horses, along with the need to be both loved and led. I particularly love the last line.

Hi Jenny, they are like

Posted on Mon, 23 May 2022

Hi Jenny, they are like 'ghosts just passing by in silence'. They appear to inhabit another world, somewhere deep inside the night. I've noticed a lot of them around recently and if they're in the house, I go to great lengths to escort them out...

You sold it to me until,

Posted on Sun, 22 May 2022

You sold it to me until, 'custard dripping from a dead deer's eye'. It sounds interesting and, not following the latest movie releases, I'd never heard of this film.

I fluctuate between thinking that men are responsible for all the evils...

That is really lovely lenchen

Posted on Fri, 20 May 2022

That is really lovely lenchen. I'd never heard it called Eve's Tears either. I love the name Eve, and Lilly of the Valley is a favourite flower and scent of mine so I will be calling it that name from now on. I have a tiny cluster of it from an...

One of my favourite tales

Posted on Sat, 14 May 2022

One of my favourite tales because everything about it is fascinating and mostly very plausible. I like your modern take and anything which keeps this story alive. You have succeded in maintaining the sinisterness of the original.

This really got into my head

Posted on Tue, 17 May 2022

This really got into my head Rhiannon. As I read, I could really imagine lying there, confined but still living through all the sounds from the open window. Reminded me of being a small child and sent to bed in summer when I wasn't at all sleepy...

I enjoyed this, you've set

Posted on Fri, 13 May 2022

I enjoyed this, you've set things out very clearly like a great teacher. I decided not to read or write for the past few days because I felt overwhelmed and the earth's spinning made me feel sick and dizzy but reading this has reset my spinacles...

A clever and interesting poem

Posted on Fri, 06 May 2022

A clever and interesting poem Di. There's so many directions you can go in with a chrysalis, it's such a shocking peice of engineering and a shocking process for the creature involved but somehow it survives all that change. I enjoyed the uplift...

It is sad that they interbred

Posted on Mon, 09 May 2022

It is sad that they interbred, the English ones being so much more delicate. A lovely tribute to a beautiful sight. We are so lucky if we can get out and see these gems in the natural world because they are free and better than man-made...
