Posted on Wed, 21 Jun 2017

Crikey, that made me laugh, a lot. 'Whack for ma Daddio,' All forgotten, face full of dirt. Reminded me of when I buried a lifeless pet goldish and as I was covering it with soil, it flipped and said, 'The game's up asshole pet owner!' It was...

The challenges underfoot make

Posted on Mon, 03 Jul 2017

The challenges underfoot make the process all the more satisfying . Love the idea of bracken as cladding and the anticipation your words build of of the view over the other side.

Love the contrast in this

Posted on Wed, 26 Apr 2017

It sounds lovely, socialising

Posted on Wed, 23 Nov 2016

It sounds lovely, socialising, mature style, comforting and fun bar a few physical restraints. An interesting, beautiful poem.
