That's Not The Way I Go

A storm, however brief does

Posted on Thu, 14 Feb 2019

A storm, however brief does seem to bring with it a change of behaviour in our wildlife as well as the palpable change in atmosphere. This is a lovely tribute. I really enjoyed 'globules released from dark sky splashing.' We missed most of the...

I too love the arrangement

Posted on Tue, 12 Feb 2019

I too love the arrangement Rhiannon, it really works and of course the theme is perfect for February, the soil warming and those seeds about to burst unseen with so much in store.

I love 'pure pearls' Rhiannon

Posted on Mon, 04 Feb 2019

I love 'pure pearls' Rhiannon and also 'rich greening'. They are such a pure little flower braving the cold and warming the beds for the spring flowers to come.

It's so beautiful Rhiannon, I don't think I've ever seen one of these birds and your poem is a graceful tribute.

This is neat. It makes me think of all those molecules and everything else sleeping, unseen, there's so much we don't see. Looking forward to warmer times, mercury creeping.

Posted on Tue, 29 Jan 2019

Thanks Di_Hard I have removed a repeated word. That's interesting about the rain, I hadn't realised it was such a factor. As for not letting your son have a bike, I'm not sure how you stop them if they are hell bent on it but the statistics are...

Posted on Sun, 13 Jan 2019

For a short story this has got it all; charm and chargrin, adversity and perversity. I think it's just perfect and like all your pieces it played out in glorious tecnicolour in my mind's eye.

I think this is pure quality.

Posted on Fri, 07 Dec 2018

I think this is pure quality. It sounds so good in my head, I want to hear it read aloud by a man with a nice voice. Those solid consonants hold each other up without rubbing together, just like the branches of a tree Rhiannon.

I'm really enjoying these,

Posted on Sat, 10 Nov 2018

I'm really enjoying these, well-written and engaging. I too liked the description of the high heels stabbing the carpet, honestly why would you wear high heels in a care home, even if you were a rabied manager on a power trip. Your brother's...
